Firstly what is the actual issues you are having? Do you get any error messages that you can let us know?

I would suggest the following basic steps.

1. Boot the CD and choose the option to check media - this does an MD4 sum on the disc to check for any errors.

2. Boot as a liveCD. Does the desktop appear and can you click on the installer.

3. If you can do 1 & 2 above what happens when you try to run the installer? Do you get any error message? How far does the installation get??

You will need to install the Nvida drivers to get the most out of your graphics card, but the system should boot to a desktop without you having to install them.

Ubuntu 9.04 only works in my laptop.......But updates of softwares for 9.04 version has been stopped.....But i need softwares like kile(latex software), Xfig, Gimp Editor to be installed in ubuntu.....It is not available for updates for ubuntu 9.04 version.....

Is there any way to get setup files of Xfig and Kile seperately for UBUNTU 9.04 version without going into "Ubuntu software center"...............If any one gets that setup file "web link", then post it here i will download and install them through TERMINAL.............THANK U............
