noapic Ubuntu error


First of all I'm spanish so my english is not that perfect but i'l try my best. secondly I'm not an expert at computers in fact, depending on your answers I might continue or I'l have to give up.
I tried to install ubuntu in my pc but it wouldnt let me do it because of a NOAPIC thing. the fact is that eventually a friend of mine took the hd to his place and installed it for me but what a nasty surprise when I put the hd back in my pc and the flippin' noapic warning came on again. the question is, should I dare to fix it myself or am I risking my pc 'health'? could anyone tell me if it's only a matter a couple of things from the boot system and thats it or on the contrary, it'd take an expert to do it?
thanks a lot and sincerely hope to become a rightful member of the linux comunity

Hi...

Welcome to the forum, your English is pretty good, actually.

Could you tell exactly what the error says?

Also, could you open a terminal and post the readout of...

Code:
dmesg
Regards...

vinnygreen,

Press Esc or any key at the startup of live DVD.

Then press F6 for Other Options.

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootOptions

F6 installation options explained:

Yes, because you are using a live DVD.

This will not affect the existing installation on your hard drive.

not seeing a 'save and exit' option, should I presume I must then hit the 'Install Ubuntu' again?
thanks again

vinnygreen,

You do not need to do a new installation.

See:
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootOptions


6. F6 Other Options. ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power Interface) and EDD (Enhanced Disk Drive) options which may help if your computer does not support or has problems with these systems.

Highlight the selection and press the ENTER key or SPACE key to select it. An "X" will appear, indicating selection. Multiple items can be selected from this popup menu.

Hit ESC to leave the popup menu. The selections are retained at the time the user presses the ESC key.

Remove the live DVD and reboot the computer.

Still don't work! It doesn't save the changes so I'm thinking of upgrading to a better motherboard with hdmi and all. I suppose that will solve any conflict,
Thanks for your help and patience.
