Is it the monitor displaying the message, or is it software displaying
the message?

You could try disabling the framebuffer of the installer since it
doesn't get along with some LCDs in my experience.  One of the boot
prompt pages has info on how to do that.  I think video=vga16:off might
do it.

You loose support for any non latin1 languages that way of course, but
at least it might work.

Or you can connect a different monitor to try that if you have one.
