Lance: thank you! after setting the boot with "nomodeset" at last i see my
"Lubuntu splashcreen" (even if it's the plymouth text-mode).
No errors were found when checking the disk for deffects...

Now i see "ubuntu@ubuntu:-$" and type "sudo lxdm" to start the session and
it doesn't work... in the other machines i tried this it does...

Oh, i forgot to say i'm using the 64bit version.
