I am quite new to Ubuntu and non-Windows OS in general and have a big problem trying to install Ubuntu 12.04 (32bit version) on my (old) computer:
- Processor Type: AMD Sempron(tm) 2600+ (64bit supported)
- Processor Speed: 1600MHz
- Microcode Update: 20FC2/0
- L1 Catche Size: 128KB
- L2 Catche Size: 128KB
- DDR1: 512MB/166MHz.
I have installed Ubuntu 12.04 without an internet connection. (I had to configure the PPPoE connection after the installation.) Already during the installation everything was very slow (the reactions of the system to my actions). After the installation I took the CD out and restarted and during the booting I got the error message:
'92.0kHz/57.8Hz frequency out of range try another resolution'.
Then the log in screen appeared, everything was normal and after logging in problems started. Ubuntu just did not react (or reacted very slowly). First I saw the Launcher but everything else was black. After starting something from the Launcher just nothing happened on the screen. I did the installation again but problems remained. I saw now the usual desktop after logging in (not a black screen) but now I couldn't do anything, not even staring a terminal. Now (after several restarts), it is even worse: after logging in the whole screen is black and I see only the mouse cursor.
I tried using the live CD but this produces the same problems.
Should I try an older version of Ubuntu?
I saw some threads with similar problems like mine and tried the solutions proposed there but they did not work for me. After all, I have no active internet connection on my computer, so I can't download anything.
