Hi and welcome, Have you tried using the F4 option and change the resolution as the nvidia graphics may cause a issue. If that does not work you may try and install Ubuntu then you can install the studio packages from the repositories.

hello there! i tried the f4 mode but there's no thing that would change the resolution(choices are: Normal, OEM manufacturer and type in command line)

if there's no luck for me to install ubuntu studio..what kind of distribution would you recommend me? thanks!

i also tried linux mint! after i chose install linux mint.... the blinking underscore would also appear. What seems to be the problem? I'm booting it on my cd rom
