Re: Compaq Presario SR1165CL
I am not sure if you got 64bit processors with only 512MB RAM... I have my doubts until someone clarifies.
In all likelihood your PC supports only 32bit. You should download and install 32bit Ubuntu. Make sure your downloaded copy is not corrupt with MD5Sum Check and also make sure you have burned the .iso correctly/properly to the install disk.
If you had downloaded and burned Ubuntu correctly then, assuming you have a 32bit processor, the above message when you run 32bit Ubuntu may have something to with PAE/Non-PAE kernel. For detailed more info see HERE.
Edit: Refer to the following post if you indeed have non-pae cpu:
