    When you say "nothing wants to run" do you mean you are seeing a blinking icon and you have to type something in? is the screen black? any indication of anything on the screen? when you installed it how did you install it?

    Get back to us with more details please
    Common Knowledge: Username, "root". Password, "toor". "startx" gives you a GUI, and "fix-vesa" will fix BT if you have no GUI. Start networking with "/etc/init.d/networking start" and check your IP settings with "ifconfig -a". "dhclient" will automatically use DHCP for your IP. Google is your friend.

    im guessing it must be hardware related if you tried different distros and none of them worked what methods are you using to install them . burned iso to cd (you may need to burn the iso at a slower speed) are you creating a bootable usb drive (use unetbootin) .

    Yes but as i said installing is correct without any errors etc, problem had started when i eject my cd/usb and try to run it "normally"

    try getting a USB keyboard and plugging it in, or a PS2 boot the system and see if it works.

    Also I assume by your grammar that your not in the USA, what country are you from and what is your keyboard layout that your using?

    if you booted ubuntu that will go to xwindows automatically, did your mouse work?

    How many HDD's you running? , Have you got a USB drive plugged in?

    restore BIOS to defaults
    I then suggest you check your BIOS is trying to load from the correct drive.

    If you confirm it is trying to boot off the correct drive ,run a hard drive check like

    The blinky cursor thing means that the install didn't work correctly.
