How to install Manjaro Linux on an Asus desktop

I get a black screen when I am trying to install Manjaro 17 from USB onto my Asus tower, G20aj Processor Intel® Core™ i5-4460 CPU @ 3.20GHz, 3201 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s). . ( had the same issue in Ubuntu, but thought the different loader Manjaro and Arch might make a difference but it hasn’t.)  The problem seems to lie with the Asus video drivers as I can install just fine on my Alienware/Dell and my HP Spectre.
On the Ubuntu side I found posts talking about some commands to run to get around this issue like aspci and quiet splash, etc. I am not sure where to enter commands or how.  

What I have been doing is boot the computer with install USB and go to the Manjaro OS install line press “e” and then go to the line beginning “Linux/boot/vmlinux-$2” at the end of that line place my commands like  acpi_enforce_resources=lax acpi_osi=Linux acpi_osi=’!Windows 2012’ acpi=force pcie_aspm=force
and then hit F10?

Nothing seems to work.  I have been working on the Manjaro forum but have come to a bit of deadend.

Manjaro is a fairly new Linux Distro.

Best to ask this question in the Manjaro forums.
at the end of that line place my commands like  ...

Manjaro 17 xcfe is a nice OS. I have it running on a VM and on an old laptop as well. If you have an unusual video card, the best is to find the linux version of the driver and install your distro with additional drivers. Have you tried this option?

No, my drivers are pretty standard.  The desktop is probably only 4 years old.
What happened with nomodeset?

Nothing, it went straight to the Black Screen
EricCEOAuthor Commented:
I will try that next.  BTW-  in your first post did you mean for me to put 1:nomodeset or just nomodeset?
The latter
EricCEOAuthor Commented:
Okay, that is what I did.
