    RE: Unrecoverable Error
    Ok, for sound; Creative emu1ok1-JFF Creative Tech 97 For video; Radeon 9550, 256 MB DDR 128 bit. Hope this helps. I'm really hoping to be able to run Ubuntu 12.04 but if the machine is not up to snuff I guess I will have to look at Lubuntu. Everything in it seems to be a compromise though, or does lite not mean (kinda crippled)? Chris Last minute addition here. Once I receive that unrecoverable error message the desk top loads. Once it is loaded I have not found anything yet that does not work so It appears the system is capable. Yes no?

    RE: Unrecoverable Error
    Seems to me that that original video card is no longer the one in the system. It popped and had a cascading affect and took out the mother board with it. I will try to have a look this evening at the existing video card. I think it is of the same manufacturer but a better model. I will check. Thanks so far to everyone. Chris....

    I don't think memory is a problem with the desk top. I believe it was running 1 or 2 mb of Ram. It has a 60 gb hard drive. In the next few days I will pull the fan off the cpu and find out what it actually is. Over the years, it was UP graded a few times but this was the original machine 10 years ago and the current config is more powerful. The original purchase was 2002-12-27 and was a Athlon XP 2000+ (1.86MHz) and MSI KT4VL mainboard. and MSI GF4 MX440-VTP 64MB DDR video card, The soundblaster is you sound card. Chris

    RE: Unrecoverable Error
    Sorry Fellas, I have been trying to get the info on my system. The Windows OS has been erased and the hard drive formated before attempting a fresh install. I know I am running a creative sound blaster pro for video card and I'm pretty sure the system is about 7-8 years old. I will try to provide more specifics this week. Someone mentioned Ubuntu is primarily for newer hardware. Is there an older version that may be better suited to my antiquated machine here? It was getting so slow that a freind mentioned I should try Linux and breath some new life into the old girl. Well here I am complete nube and failures on both systems I have tried to install on. I also tried to install Ubuntu on my laptop an Acer Aspire 3900 but I believe with it there is a lack of memory RAM. The laptop only has 512 and it dedicates somethint like 20 some megs for video leaving my 448 mb remaining. I'm told Ubuntu needs 512 when used from a usb drive. Chris

    Unrecoverable Error
    Jut tried to install Ubutu 12.04 on my pc that I had uninstalled Windows and formatted the drive prior to installing Ubutu. Just about all the way through to the end of the installation I got a message stating "Installer has encountered an unrecoverable error and will now start a desktop session for you to .........". Cant remember the rest sorry! The OS seems to run ok from that point once the desktop is loaded from the cd but system will not boot properly without having the Ubutu installation cd in the drive. Then of course it tries again to install. I went through the process again telling it to erase Ubutu and reinstall Ubutu with the seme error message at the end. Ideas? Chris
