    9.40 means 2009 April. It is too old! What are the basic specs of your computer? A black screen with a flashing underscore often means a video problem.

    RE: updates on a previously working laptop using debian jessie
    Did it POST (Power-on self-test)? Did it make a bleep? Could you access the BIOS? If the answers to these questions are NO then it is likely to be a Hardware issue rather than Linux. Bits of computers don't last forever.

    RE: Yahoo messenger
    Yahoo Messenger for Linux is old, outdated and useless. Use an instant messenger like Pidgin instead, which you can configure to get messages from different sources.

    RE: install linux
    How big is your flash drive? If it is more than 4Mb it should already be formatted with fat32. Does you Dell computer still have Windows on it? Can you format from there? If not you may need to create a Linux LiveCD which has Gparted on it. Gparted is a Linux program for formatting.

    RE: install linux
    The file you download is an .ISO. You need to "burn" the .ISO which is a special operation to create a bootable Linux Disk. Have a look at: http://ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/2013/12/install-linux-mint-16-petra-from-usb/ NOTE that Linux Mint is now available on issue 17.

    RE: how to install linux to hdd
    Error 15 is a Boot error (I *think* meaning that files cannot be found). Did you install Boot to the MBR?

    RE: Which version of Linux is closest to Windows XP?
    Linux can be made to LOOK like Windows XP. BUT Linux is Linux and Windows is Windows. There is a learning curve - just like there was between Windows 98 and XP or XP and Windows 8. Probably the distro that can be made to LOOK like Windows XP is ZorinOS. BUT under the hood it is LINUX. If you Google "Linux Alternatives to Windows XP" you will see many different suggestions.
