I have been trying to install ubuntu for 3 days now on 3 different computers with 6 different dvd/cd burners 14 different downloads from different mirrors. i finally got a disk burned from the bit torrent version that is "good" :P now when i go to install it, it starts the orange bar and 75% into it it comes up with a black screen and a white outlined "X" as the mouse pointer. then the comp stops running so i hit the power button 1 time and it comes back and tells me to take disk out of tray close tray and hit enter. it never installs what do you think i should do.

BTW all 3 comps are doing the same thing. Do i need to format the hard drive and start with a clean drive?...i dont think its the ram because 2 out 3 comps have 1 week old ram and they are different manufacturers

Have you tried the alternate version? You can find it here: http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/downloadmirrors#alternate
also, how much RAM do you have?
