After i install ubuntu with no errors it loads up but doesnt show the loading screen and when it loads the login i login it makes the drum sound then the screen messes up and goes back to the login screen and it just keeps going back to the login screen every time i login. Any help and suggestions and greatly appreciated.

Sounds like its a graphics driver playing up.

You could try (provided you're connected to wired network) pressing Ctrl-Alt-F2 to get into a text console and loging in there. Then

sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop
sudo aptitude update
sudo aptitude safe-upgrade
sudo /etc/init.d/gdm start

Now if that doesn't work, switch back to Ctrl-Alt-F2 and let us know what it says :)
