Hi there A friend recently turned me onto Linux and was trying to get a solid copy for a while now and ran into Ubuntu. After a couple outs of going through it figuring out if I want to instal I went through with it and was going to instal onto my Old Dell Dimension 4550, But i ran into a problem on the Initial loading screen. For some reason the Ubuntu Installer Freezes at the Initial Load up screen ( the one with Ubuntu in the middle Pink screen and 5 Dots that change color to show its loading.) I have tried restarting even tried an older version of Ubuntu But non of the versions end up with different results. So this has brought me to a conclusion there is something wrong.

I need some Help With my problem

Hi, welcome to the fora.

I have the same graphics card on one of my computers, and it works well. Try the 10.10 alternate ISO:
