Are you sure you really wish to erase windows totally ?
In that case just boot from Ubuntu install media .
Check the install media to be sure that it is not broken.
When choosing the partition let UBUNTu use the entire disk
And that is it
Or do you prefer a dual boot ?
Meaning installing Ubuntu along side with UBUNTU

Here you go:
  1. Download Ubuntu
  2. Burn to CD/DVD
  3. Put CD/DVD in drive
  4. Boot from CD/DVD
  5. Format hard drive when asked
If you bothered to check Ubuntu's website, you'd find instructions:
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation
