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. :)

I have a dell latitude d510 currently running xubuntu 13.04 and linux 3.8. I want this machine to host JACK processes together with EDIROL UA-25 during a live session and therefore, it needs an RT kernel. Since this is a laptop, I do like to have no RT kernel installed also saving power. How can I configure this?
I'm new to Ubuntu and I'm trying out 12.04 on a Dell Latitude D360 laptop via USB flash drive. Everything seems to work except for wireless. I'll download the drivers with an ethernet cable, and restart the laptop, but then Ubuntu crashes when it's trying to start up.
