I have been trying to get the live image of 10.4 to work on my machine, however I keep running into video corruption issues.

When I try to run the live image, from a CD or USB stick, it shows the loading screen fine and the bars underneath the logo move and look fine. Then it seems as though it has loaded and goes to desktop, but it only shows a corrupted image of the loading screen. After a few seconds there seems to be some sort of intro sound playing, however it is very scratchy/corrupted. I'm not sure what the issue is and I have tried 32 and 64 bit versions.

I have also tried installing via Wubi and get the same results. I'm really at a loss of how to correct the problem. Not sure if it is a video driver issue, or some other issue. I also can't seem to find a safe graphics mode to try and work around the problem.

My specs are
DFI Lanparty Expert
nvidia 7800 gt
2gb ram
x-fi sound card

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I took an image of the video corruption.
