Can't Get Any Disto To Install

I'm having a major problem getting any Linux distro I have tried to install. I've tried Mepis,Suse and Mandriva. What happens is in Mepis for example I put in the CD it loads up. I selected Kernal 2.6 for newer hardware all goes fine. There then is an error with the video frequency or something and I'm asked to select for 6 possible solutions or type scan for it to scan and detect. So I type scan but it just takes me back to the 6 options. I have went through them all but no joy. What happens is when it loads up the screen is totally unreadable,with lines and shadow etc meaning I can't see what i'm doing to install linux. I'm using an I815 chipset. Anyone and Ideas?? I assume its my video adaptor causing the problem

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
