Re: try to install Ubuntu 12.04
Now, 1) Do you get a chance to Hit Enter In that First page & get into the Language screen? Then you can try the 'nomodeset' trick!
2)you can go with DavetheRave's good idea, see if a text-based installation succeeds!
Have you given 13.04 (or 13.10 Beta2, depending on how adventurous you are) a try , it comes with newer kernel, maybe that will suit your hardware.
Also, I recommend giving Debian a go and see how you wind up!
