Re: New install of ubuntu 12.04.3 32bit, running from dvd it works but not if i insta
This is a very low-end system and it won't run Ubuntu very well if at all. The limited resources may be why the system is choking. I would suggest Lubuntu based on your system specs. Try downloading a LiveDVD/USB version of Lubuntu 13.04 32-bit and see if that doesn't solve your graphics issue.
