I recently got a new laptop (http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...?EdpNo=3184129)
When I try to install Ubuntu (ubuntu-12.10-desktop-amd64.iso), the grub screen will come up. I choose the install option and then the screen becomes garbled.
I am fairly certain that is has to do with the NVIDIA card, although I'm suspicious that the iso is amd64 when my processor is intel (although that was the only 64 bit iso I saw).
At any rate, I tried the following () but nothing happens when I try to do what it suggests i.e. it still goes to the garbled screen.
Anybody have any suggestions as to how I can get ubuntu on here?
