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.

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'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.
It asked me to boot and while booting, it offered me to start using Ubuntu. I chose Ubuntu and a screen came saying I can go to options menu using Esc, if I entered Esc, it asks me which mode I'd like. I entered demo mode.
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.
