Default Cannot get any distro of Linux to install - Randomly locks up

I have been trying for the past few days to mainly get Ubuntu Studio to install but the same problem is persistent with all versions I have tried.

After about 30 seconds (same with the Fedora 15 live CD) it just completely locks up with nothing to do but press the power button.

With the fedora live CD though, I noticed it does say failed to load nouveau (which is the nvidia driver, Right?)

Im installing from a USB stick (Toshiba Transmemory, will post the specs at the bottom) because I do not own a CD/DVD Drive, and there are no more power cables left in the case to fit one.

Does anybody have any idea what I could try?

Thanks in advance, Kieron
