Tried:

Boot from installation disk (change BIOS settings to make your cd / dvd drive the first boot device.

Choose the advanced options boot up

Format your hdd (assuming it is c type "format c: / u" without the quotes

this will take some time

When complete, re-boot and try the install again

Tried re-seating your graphics card? Sometimes they can work loose...Remove, clean and replace
