    I can't add anything besides what's written in #18. I believe you are on the wrong track, loading too heavy a system on very modest hardware. Also I see no point in sticking to 12.04 when this release has never worked well for you.

    Leaving the thread for now but maybe others have a suggestion.

    Forget everything you have done until now.

    Download and burn: Gparted LiveCD/USB.
    Boot with it and delete ALL Partitions on your Hard Disk.

    Create:
    2GB SWAP Partition
    18GB format as EXT4 (during lubuntu install you will use this as "/").

    Download and Burn: Lubuntu Minimal CD/USB and READ CAREFULLY everything that is written at the link.
    Follow the instructions CAREFULLY.

    Good Luck.
