You may have a bad LiveCD. APIC controls power functions and others relating to turning off and on you system. Reburn the image. Download from this site, www,ubuntu.com. Search for the distro your choice, LTS preferred. Try the installation again. Or, you could download linux mint 11.

On the boot screen, press "e" to edit the boot line and add "noapic" at the end. Try then...

Or try another Linux distro like Opensuse or Fedora

Well, I really don't know much about the matter :S

Noapic just disables the apic... (as it sometimes brings up problems)
