Kubuntu wont install on my machine

Bug Description

I have a intel 82810 graphics card which is quite buggy. When I load kubuntu live cd ( i havent installed it yet) normally, the screen goes blank after loading, but when I use it in safe graphics mode with VGA, after loading, it shows a non-moving colour bar at the top of the screen. After that I can not do anything and do not see any movement so i have to reboot. I would really appreciate some help on this. Also, with my XP, when I originally installed it, it too would not load untill i downloaded and installed the driver in safe mode.

I have an Intel Celeron Processer, a PC about 6 Years old, 512 MB Ram, a CRT monitor, and the rest. I have spoken on the MIRC channels but noone seems to be able to help me. If anyone can help me come up with a solution, please email <email address hidden>.

PS i have a desktop PC.

BTW I have never used any linux distribution before, only windows, so if this is apparently really easy to fix dont blame me. Also, I have checked the CD for faults and there is none, and it is a brand new just downloaded version of Kubuntu Gutsy Gibbon.
