As I understood from your post that you have downloaded Linux Mint x86_64 and x86 DVDs and you are trying to install it on your computer.

This is on the 64 dvd version.
i have downloaded the 32 bit, also the 64 bit,
Please provide additional information on which ISO you have (actually) downloaded and which method of installation you are using ?

Have you tried running the mint 12 live dvd rather than doing the install immediately? Also, I noticed that the live dvd freezes if I have any usb storage devices plugged in while I'm testing it. If you have some plugged in, then try unplugging them.
