Hi and welcome, lets start with the basics. What are the specs on the system?
Have you checked the cd for errors,and if you burned the cd you may check the iso

Have you installed the correct display drivers for your graphics card?

In any case, you can get your display back by activating the generic driver, then from there you can make sure you choose the correct driver.

Here's how:

1. Reboot and start Ubuntu in recovery mode. This will give you a text based system and will stop at a command prompt.

2. run the following command to back up your xorg.conf


sudo cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup

3. Edit xorg.conf


sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf

4. Look in the display section where Driver = whatever
5. Change whatever to MESA (so that it says Driver = Mesa
6. Save your changes and close the editor
7. Restart the machine


sudo shutdown now -r

This should give you a GUI but you won't have any hardware acceleration and will be limited to certain resolutions, but from there you can choose install the correct display drivers.
