You may try from the Live DVD: press a key at the countdown screen during boot, then press Tab to edit the boot parameters, and on the line of text that appeared change "quiet splash" to "nomodeset" (without the quotes). See if this allows you to boot the Live DVD.
Please open Software Sources, add ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates, then close and refresh. In case it doesn't offer to refresh you can go to Package Manager and click refresh. Then you can install nVidia's graphics driver, from Additional Drivers. When that program does not offer you the "current version" you can get nvidia-current with Software or Package Manager.
