No way to install Linux on Acer Aspire 5750G

I am really struggling to install Linux on a brand new Acer Aspire 5750G.
I have tried with Ubuntu 10.10, 11.04, 11.10 (32bit and 64bit) and with Mint 12 32bit - both from CD and USB (built with Unetbootin). I always get an error message that sounds more or less like this:

udevd[113]: '/sbin/modprobe -bv pci:V000010DEd00000DEAsv00001025sd00000505bc03sc00 i00' [201] terminated bi signal 9 (Killed)

Since I've read that nvidia optimus may be the reason of the troubles, I tried to disable the nvidia graphic card in order to use only the integrated graphic card (choosing "integrated" instead of "switchable" in the bios) but it didn't help much.

It seems that people have several troubles with this 5750G, but at least they installed Linux. I can't even find the way to install it!

Does anyone have any suggestion?
