Bug Description

I recently and for a long while installed Ubuntu many versions for my Asus F5GL laptop. Even though I couldn't see a good result of detecting my drivers and still I cant activate the desktop effects. When I go through the Update Manager, it seeks the updates and fails to install them showing a networks problem. But there is no any network problems with my Laptop as I can surf internet usually via Firefox browser. I'm engaging with my stuff of studies in a Sri Lankan University and it is essential to use ubuntu here for further activities. I kindly ask you a better solution for me and quick reply. Thanks.

Manufacturer: Asus Corporation.
Model : F5GL
Architecture : i386

Are you meaning that you installed from scratch many times and everytime you've got this error?

I am getting always this error. But I run the same installer in different computers, and didn't got any errors and works with ubuntu successfully. Am I unfortunate to having my laptop without ubuntu further? Please help me if you can. And tell me whether do I need to upgrade my hardware or any relevant peripherals? I need to work with ubuntu as my all the stuffs of studies are based of FOSS....!

My error is shown in the figure below. It comes when the installer finished all the files installed to the HDD. But there is no grub or any other boot loader to switch to Ubuntu when I restart my laptop. And also when I run Ubuntu through the CD rom (live) it stops showing me the login screen only with a purple background and "Ubuntu"... Have ay further ways to try to install ubuntu here in my laptop please?
