If they are the same model computers it should, you should not be using XP, it is really crappy on modern hardware, it is fine for a Pentium 4 from 2002 but not a modern system, XP is EOL this April

@bodhi.zazen the installer for ubuntu will now let you use upper case so I am assuming, you can have upper for your full name but not your name in a terminal

comment After upgrading to Ubuntu 13.04, should I stick with NVIDIA 310 driver or should I change it to 313 driver?
They are all the right driver, i suggest the highest version that works for your system, waiting on the 319.23 driver to be available outside of the xorg edgers ppa and in a stable ppa

no idea figured it would be fixed by now, you could use saucy's (ubuntu 13.10) kernel, there may be a back-ported kernel available, otherwise there is the mainline kernel
