sounds like a graphics card module issue. sometimes ubuntu has a tough time distinguishing what graphics card driver to use.

can you hit ctrl-alt-f1 to get to the tty1 terminal session?
enter this command to see what graphics card you have

lspci | grep VGA

It would help if you could provide a bit more information like e.g.:


is there already an operating system installed? If so, which one?
Which version of Ubuntu are you trying to install?
What are you using to install it? CD? USB-stick?
Have you tried starting up with the live-CD/Live-USB and if so, what were the results?


Please help others in helping you.
EDIT: Sorry, was a bit to quick: It seems you ahve Windows installed, and are trying to install through Wubi, is that correct?

Please try and start up the Ubuntu Live environment to see if there could be any hardware issues.

PLease download from here http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop (read the instructions) to create a Live-USB. Boot with that and see if Ubuntu starts at all. It will boot up in an environment that lets you try out Ubuntu without messing with your current system, so you can check for compatibilities.

What boots until there? Are you sure you booted the Live-CD? I have never seen those messages when booting from the Live-CD or USB

AFAIK you can uninstall a Wubi install from the Windows configuration center or whatever it is called. You obviously cannot uninstall it from within the wubi install itself...
