Lubuntu no longer likes certain graphics cards, at least not since
several releases back.  It's kind of buried [1] but you can try the
work-around for the Radeon card, if that's what you have:

When booting the Live DVD, at the DVD's boot prompt where it says the
default option is 'live', try

	live video=radeonfb:1024x768-32

instead of letting it timeout or just plain 'live'  If that solves the
graphics problem, then it is safe to continue the installation and the
Live installer will then pass those settings on to the installed system
