    (Just as you know i'm not very skilled)

    Have you tried to use an live usb instead? Maybe there is something wrong with the cd.

    EDIT:

    To make a live usb is not hard, jsut use the iso file with this program: http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/

    When you see that keyboard on the screen (congrats on recognizing it as such btw!), press a key. You will get a menu and one of the options should be safe graphics mode.

    edit: waiting as i wrote earlier wont help as you need to select the language in the screen you cant see. Maybe pressing ENTER will proceed to the next step (using english as language) but Im not entirely sure.

    USB wont help. An out of range error means your PC is sending a signal to your monitor that the monitor cant handle. The pc isnt freezing up or nothing wrong is gonig on except a wrong resolution / color depth / refresh rate. The usb will give the same problem. Try safe graphics (see post above)

    I tried, unless I'm blind there is no option for safe graphics mode on the 10.04 boot cd.

    You have to press a key while you see that keyboard logo at the bottom. Press escape or space (think any key works, not sure). Then you will get a menu. And feel free to complain about hiding that menu here:
