I have been trying to install linux on my computer for a while and it just doesn't work, I get error screens all the time and I have tried different distros. I really need help and I'd love to have my computer run Linux instead of windows I do in fact want to completely replace my system with linux. I have tried to install it both ways LiveUSB & LiveCD.

here is the error I get:


My computer Specs are:

12gb Ram
4 Disks 250gb - 500gb
Nvidia Gforce Gaming MSI 750 ti
Intel i5 4440 3.1 ghz
Gigabyte motherboard b85m-d3h

Please help, thanks in advance.

Looks like a video problem. Have you tried the "nomodeset" option when booting (the live media)? (or edit the word in the grub boot commands on the linux line, there are many questions/answers about Nvidia driver setup). When you get it running with the noveau driver, you can then look around for proprietary drivers for improved performance (Additional Drivers under the launcher). Maybe search for "hybrid" or bumblebee for other solutions for your type of hybrid video.
