Building a Linux Box

http://askubuntu.com – I am building a computer to run Ubuntu 12.10 64 bit. I got the computer running, and have been trying to install the OS. I have burned iso file to dvd and calculated and verified the MD5 checksum, but was unable to install OS. A fellow human suggested I try to install from usb to no avail. Specifically I get black screen when I try to Install Ubuntu, Try Ubuntu Without Installing, or Verify Disc Integrity. I do not understand why it is doing this. Is it time to start taking apart the computer? Sincerely, puil9 (HowTos)
