Having trouble installing... or even entering the OS

I recently got interested in Ubuntu and already read allot about it in the internet and a book i bought and decided to install it today.

I downloaded the version 12.04 64 bit and tried to install it by booting up the disc, but i couldn't even access the menu or anything because it would just crash, trying to show a menu.
I downloaded the 32 bit but same thing happened and searched for other alternatives. I installed it via alternative way (the one with a simple GUI) and it was successful but when i try to access the partition with the OS it still crashes right there.
I'm guessing its the video card and i search online and try different commands, but for some reason they are unsuccessful.

My PC Specs are:
Asus M4A89GTD-Pro

Phenom x4 unlocked 5 cores at 4GHZ

6Gb of Kingston Memory

AMD Radeon Hd 6790

If you need addition details please ask.

Im sorry if its a stupid question, i am new to the operating system and learning. Thank you for your support.

EDIT: here is the image I get every time it gets near a GUI when installing or alredy installed http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/85/img20120426222430.jpg/
