AMD Radeon™ HD 8400 is my internal wifi card

Sorry, that's my graphics card

All I can find is this:

Wireless LAN*
Wi-FiŽ Wireless networking (802.11b/g/n)

thats not a brand though.

Also, I got a Gnome3 failed to load warning. It says:

"Unfortunately, GNOME3 failed to load properly and started in the fallback mode."

"This most likely means your system (graphics hardware or driver) is not capable of delivering the full GNOME3 experience"

My screen is very dim.

If it's booting now why reinstall. If you have the GUI you're almost there. Download firmware-realtek copy to cd/usb & install using gdebi. Once network is up you can do it all easy.

I'm booting from a live disk, not the HDD. GRUB won't launch.
