I just installed a new fresh Ubuntu 12.04.5 on a Dell laptop, I had 14.04 but as I really love 12.04 stability I decided to get back to it.

I have a Windows installed alongside which I just keep to have a way to preserve laptop warranty somehow.

So, I had used 14.04 with out any problem, but now I just installed on first boot I can see this right after the Ubuntu start screen appears:

enter image description here

So how could I solve this? Something strange I can notice is that I can't see any GRUB screen on start but it goes right to this purple Ubuntu start splash screen, and then that black screen with error log will appear.

This is the lshw output:
