I replaced Windows 7 with Ubuntu 12.04 and it went well though I lost operation of fn keys. On upgrading to Ubuntu 12.10, start up is giving black screen though I can hear the drum beat. Kindly assist.

Sorry for the vague title, but honestly I don't know where to start.
I'm running a PC with a GTX 780. I've installed Windows 8 and tried to install Ubuntu alongside it.
I see Grub when I boot. OK.
I can't boot into Windows anymore -- after running Boot Repair, I get the Recovery screen with error 0xc000000e. Fine, I'll deal with that later.
Booting into Ubuntu, there is no display output.
Hi. I have an Asus UX32VD 6 gb ram hd400 and nvidia 620m graphics. I am starting the installation but after the selection (try or install ubuntu) it's waiting at black screen. So i cant install. Please help i dont like windows.
(i tried all of the options at startup screen. Noacpi, nomodeset etc... did not work)
I have a Dell Inspiron 7737 laptop. It came with Windows 8.1 installed. I installed Windows 7 Enterprise edition instead. Then I installed Ubuntu 14.04.1 (had to use FixPart to clear an entry that Windows 8.1 left in the boot sector, so that the Ubuntu Installer would see the Windows partitions). After that, Windows 7 booted into a black screen. It's not dead though.
I upgraded from Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, to Ubuntu 14.10. When I start my computer, I have a blank screen. If I plugin my laptop to my TV, at first only the TV turns on, but the login screen shows up on my TV, and when I log in my laptop's screen is turned on, and show Unity as expected.
I'm newbie here.
I've searched many web for my problem.
I've tried several times to install Ubuntu.
I used Wubi, and the result is always black screen after go trough the Boot manager and choose ubuntu.
I also tried using disc image so i can boot from disc. It's not start to install.
I´ve been trying to follow every guide I see about installing ubuntu onto a UEFI laptop, but so far nothing has worked. Basically I want to overwrite windows 8 with ubuntu, so I never have to see it again. I installed ubuntu 12.10 64 bit with pendrive onto a USB, went into the computer BIOS, set the usb drive as the priority, disabled fastboot and secure boot.
