Getting multi-colour lines from top to bottom


Newbie here...

For the first time ever, I just tried installing Linux on one of my PC's. It's a Dell OptiPlex GX150.

When I start installation with the first disk, it seems like it has detected vido, but not the monitor. It then detected the mouse and tries to start a Windows like enviroment. I guess it's the installation enviroment, and it just hangs with a multi color screen of death.

help!
