Does the alternate installation work on a Dell Latitude D510 with no OS installed? I want to use Ubuntu on it. The live CD does not install, but gives a black screen with a bunch of text.

About 3 months ago I put Ubuntu 9.10 on my old Dell Latitude D510 laptop, in the last couple of days got a weird problem.
My computer starts and loads but when the Ubuntu screen appears just before the login screen, the one where the bar moves across, my computer sometimes freezes.
I had no other problems and it happens maybe twice in every 9 boots.
I am testing QQ on a Latitude D510(Pentium M730, GMA 900) and it just wont boot with the 3.5 kernel. I tested with 3.5.0-1/2/3/4. After selecting the kernel in grub, the screen turns black and nothing happens.
Kernel 3.4 works fine, I am just writing this text with it.
And I actually do not know, what logs I could or should post here, so pls tell me. :)
