Trying to re-install 10.10 but it hangs on reinstall - 250GB HDD, etc...

I installed Ubuntu 10.10 on Monday and got up this morning and it would not load past "init(framesxxx)" <--can't remember exactly.

Well I decided to try a reinstall, ran it from the USB and it and it boots up, so I decided to try to install from there. Same problem.

I'm running a Acer Aspire 4730z laptop with 250 GB of HDD space, I can't remember much else after that, sorry.

So it won't install so I was hoping someone had come across this problem before or could lend me a hand.

Why don't you try repairing the current install?
There are people here who can help you with your problem.
Installing and reinstalling doesn't let you get to know linux.
