Try deselect "update while installing". You can always do that after installation.

I also have try but still not working. I also have try not to connect Internet while installing still not working. Is it my nvidia graphics card problem?

You can test this by booting Try Zorin with Safe Graphics and running the Installer from there.

If I try safe graphics it will be black screen.

Does this machine have a dedicated Intel card?

Yes this laptop has an integrated Intel graphic card.

Should I turn of secure boot? Or on and lagacy mode?

Secure Boot should be disabled. Is Windows Currently installed on the machine? If so, you MUST disable Fast Startup or Fast Boot, as that locks the drive, preventing write access.
It's very odd that nomodeset would lead to a black screen on the intel dedicated card... Do you happen to know which intel graphics card you have? Not like most people memorize it... but you never know... It doesn't hurt to ask...

When you boot into the Live USB, at the Grub menu, can you hit either the tab key or the e key to enter the Editor for Grub.
Scan the window for "quiet splash".
When you find it, add the following to make it into "quiet splash nvidia-drm.modeset=1"

Once done, continue to Boot. Then try running the installer with Network Off, "Update as you go" unchecked.

Let me try

Where did you get the iso? What is your sha256 checksum? It should be:
