When I "accidentally" get to the right place and something does open it is unreadable.  This problem also occurs with the 'buntu 13.10s so I had to back down to 13.04 to get this system to work.  

I have had the same issue with the Beta release. While booting the live image all was fine but after KDE was loaded the graphic gots unreadable. I've tried to installing it anyway but wasn't possible ...

My motherboard has an Intel onboard card but the monitor is connected to the external Nvidia 7200.

Does the live system load the Nvidia driver or rather the Nouveau? I think the live system is loading the internal one ...
