    What do you mean by 'successfully'? Did it work for some time and then stopped?
    If you install Buntu 17.10 remember to download a new ISO file.

    Old ISO files might contain a bug which can damage UEFI hardware. Updating an existing installation and upgrading to 17.10 (if one has faith in upgrades in general) are safe.

    Im sorry for that

    What i mean is that upgrading 13.04 to 13.10 via "do-release-upgrade" done with no errors and then after installation i restart my laptop and then login , thats it after login my screen goes black with a mouse cursor

    How does a live boot of 13.10 work?

    So either 13.10 does not work out of the box or it's too heavy in a live boot. 13.04 is supported a couple of months more, and when that is ending you could try installing 13.10 again through the mini.iso or try Bodhi.

    Some more memory would be a big help for the old computer. Should cost very little second hand.
