On the same box as my post below:
Since the xp reinstall Ubuntu will not run in live mode or install although it goes through the motions of install then comes up with a blank screen.Puppy runs in live mode no problem.
Appears to be an X config problem but how could I find and repair it with puppy.

From memory, Ubuntu allows you to boot up using several different bootline options that are X related:

vga=normal or vga=788 etc

Try doing something like that
