[ubuntu] cannot view

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello This is my first post. I have a Dell XPS 8300, i5, 3.30 GHz, 1T and use both FF and MSIE 9. I have a router. I wanted to run Ubuntu off of either my flashdrive or cd prior to installing. I used a 4 GB flashdrive and allocated 2 GBG for Ubuntu desktop. I have tried Lili, Imgburn and unetbootin but cannot succeed in running Ubuntu. I tried 32 and 64 byte as my pc is 64 and tried different Ubuntus such as the latest on the Ununtu site. I also tried Xubuntu. After 7 tries, it dawned on me that usually there are forums, that is why I am here. I hope there is a silly error I am making and not (Hardware)
