    You could try giving the argument "nofb" to the installer, to disable framebuffers. I had to do this with a couple of different distros that I tried out on my one computer. I'm guessing your video chipset/card is NVidia 7 or 8 series. Mine's a GeForce 7300, which isn't supported by some Linux distros' installers.

    Oh, and please tell me the exact dell laptop model you have, then I can help you out more.

    Try to reduce the screen resolution (F3 Video Mode) on the boot screen before starting the installation.
