I could try 64-bit, but I was told not to because of incompatibility issues with some programs I need to get. I thought it wouldn't be a problem, but I was just following with what was known to work for the programs.

If neither of these work, I think you can download an alternative version of ubuntu that lets you install in text-only mode.
After browsing some forum posts, it definitely seems to be the case that this version of ubuntu doesn't have the drivers for the new Intel HD Graphics. I found a post saying the same thing, to try the text based installer as well as using apt-get to get latest drivers. I will try both thank you!

Isn't it?! When I saw it, I was like oh no! Then I tried looking up to see if someone had a similar problem and couldn't find anything. Then the members of OCN came to help as per usual! OCN is awesome and the community is extremely helpful!
Thanks again for all of the suggestions guys! I will try this and update everyone!
