I suggest you provide more information about the hardware you are running and which release and flavour of Ubuntu you are trying to boot.
Have you downloaded an ubuntu iso image? In this case, did you check the md5sum and veryfied the burned CD-ROM? Sometimes lot of problem occurs because the iso image is not correct or cd burning hasn't gone well.

You can trying with other distros: KNOPPIX / GENTOO LIVE / FEDORA LIVE...
You can get ERRORS from this distros or SUCCESS.
You can decise: the problem is common with the latest stable kernels and X servers,
or the problem is only exists in this Ubuntu package (7.04? LIVE CD or DVD?)
You can try with latest unstable: Gutsy Gibbon's live CD. (now wery buggy, this is natural: bug finding release)

Hello,
what i mean is try your ubuntu cd on a different computer. It is
possible that your CD is broken.

Yes I can. But my english is bad as well.
I wanted to say: you should try other Linux distributions. For analyze where is the error:
In Ubuntu or the linux kernel.
"Live CD" is a CD that can boot and you need not install the Operating System.
You just boot from LIVE CD and you can use the new OS without install.

for example:
http://www.knoppix.org/
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedoraLiveCD
http://debian-live.alioth.debian.org/
http://www.sysresccd.org/Download
http://livecd.sourceforge.net/

Ubuntu has more type of installation media (CD/DVD; live/alternate; CPU type; DESKTOP/SERVER edition)

I SUGGEST you to TRY (when you have an IBM compatible PC, IA32+IA64+AMD+AMD64):
 for testing graphics: Ubuntu 7.04, desktop edition, i386, live media (CD/DVD)
 for installing: Ubuntu 7.04, desktop edition, i386, ALTERNATE media (CD)
you can set more options, text install is more compatible, you can download other packages with 1-2 click

http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/download:
"Check here if you need the alternate desktop CD. This CD does not include the Live CD, instead it uses a text-based installer."

What is the name of the *.iso that you try?
ubuntu-7.04-desktop-i386.iso?
