My System Specs

Default Linux ubuntu install beside win7

Downloaded the ubuntu 12:10 ISO
Burned the ISO to DVD
Wanted to install beside win7 so had choice on boot up. Then to play with or fold on.
Tried to do an demo run from dvd but eventually get "gpu lockup" screen fragments and basically freezes.
Then tried to roll back Nvidia drivers, and eventually ran no nvidia drivers still get the same msg.
I then tried Fedora. No msg. screen eventually freezes.
Both appear to get to installing a desktop but then fall apart. Freeze up

Should I try clean install only?
Should I try virtual box install?
