I have just installed Xubuntu on my old garage PC which is http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=bph06337&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=&product=58288&lang=#N341

And when I go to the terminal it crashes back to the login page again I'm dual booting with ME is there any diagnostics that I can perform ie freeware to try and find the problem? I have 192MB RAM!

When you say you goto the terminal, you're loading an xterm? hitting Ctrl + Alt + F1?

No I mean go to Applications, accesories then terminal the screen just goes funny colours then crashes back to login if go ctrl,alt F1 it goes back to like a dos window asking for my username but nothing happens when I try to type my password! Then I have to reboot again.

Sounds very odd - usually the trouble comes the other way around! Booting to a command prompt and the GUI not going due to a video card problem.

Kubuntu 7.10 did the same thing to me.

Just after U/Kubuntu 7.10 had been released, I installed it and tried it.

4-5 programs crashed on me, just after I ran them.

But back to the desktop, not the login.
