That's a very old version of Ubuntu. Have you tried a more recent one?

✔ Best Answer
You may need to install an earlier version of Ubuntu rather than a newer one (eg v10.xx or earlier) or update the BIOS to the latest version which you can get from Dell's support website.

Alternatively, try a different Linux derivative (eg Puppy Linux etc).

As a matter of interest, how muc RAM do you have? I've just realized how old that computer is.
