I followed the instructions and tried to install the sample data but the frontend looks something like thisFrontend pic

I'm new to magento and don't know what to do


Here is a guide on how to install it

Main thing that you should know that you need to extract magento sample data (.sql file and media folder) then put media folder into your magento installation and import .sql file into your empty database before you will run Magento installation wizard, otherwise you won't be able to successfully install sample data

Also check your theme configuration see here
