aaaaaai'm gonna try rebooting one more time, and if that doesn't work, i'm gonna switch to a different distro.01:41
aaaaaayeah know it's just a black screen with a cursor, i'm probably gonna switch to a different distro.01:44
aaaaaayeah i give up on trying to get lubuntu to work02:02
guivercaaaaaa, it's likely unrelated to distro, but age of software stack.  You can look at https://manual.lubuntu.me/lts/A/tips_and_tricks.html?highlight=nomodeset (the `nomodeset` option should allow a box to boot if you've graphics issues, you can then try and `ubuntu-drivers autoinstall` to get additional kernel modules (ie. drivers) installed...02:15
guivercanother option is always using a different kernel stack. LTS releases of Ubuntu offer two stack choices (selected by ISO); GA is the most stable (20.04 & 20.04.1 media for Lubuntu), HWE provides later kernel & thus more modern stack (but this can be problematic for some boxes too); so switching stack may help02:16
guivercall Ubuntu systems provide the same choices (not just Lubuntu; though Lubuntu media doesn't offer any OEM or the closed-source drivers of main Ubuntu; they can be added post-install though)02:17
