Ubuntu: New install help



Question:

I just installed Ubuntu 14.04 64 Bit on my computer with windows vista and after I sign in all I get is a purple screen? After looking online and trying installing nvidia driver still not working. I now see where my computer is 32 bit so I downloaded a new 14.03 32 Bit version but when I try to install this version it wants to install along side of Windows and the not working Ubuntu 64 Bit version. Can I replace the 64 Bit version with the 32 Bit. The end result I'm looking for is just to replace the 64 Bit with the 32 Bit and hopefully that will fix my problem.

EDIT: My Specs are

Windows Vista 32 bit <-- Not needed  Intel core (TM) 2 CPU, 4400 @ 2.00 GHZ  2GB RAM  Nvidia GeForce 7500LE
