  3. Hey guys, So, its been a while since I've been active on this website, and, honestly, the only reason I'm posting here as opposed to an official Linux forum is convenience. This account already exists so I might as well use it. Here's the deal: I have an old computer (Windows XP era) that I am attempting to install Linux on for my father to use for web browsing and potentially document writing (LibreOffice is included). The old HDD was an 80GB WD IDE drive with Windows XP SP3 + all updates on it. Honestly, I'm kind of attached to XP, so I didn't want to wipe it. Since the HDD was so small, I decided to get a second one; this one is a SATA-based 1TB WD Blue. I have purchased adapters and installed all of the new hardware - I also tested everything and it is confirmed functional; there are no hardware errors and the original Windows XP install still functions correctly. So I know everything is okay as of this point. Now here's the issue: every time I attempt to install a Linux distro, I get a different graphical error. I have tried multiple distros, multiple editions of each distro, and I even went as far as to burn a CD to install from. All of this to no avail. I thought that maybe the mounted distros were corrupted, so I attempted to live boot on a laptop and it worked correctly, so that's not the issue. Then I thought that my 16GB USB was too large for the old hardware to handle, so I re-mounted the ISO on a 4GB stick; same issue. I honestly don't know what to do anymore, if I can't install Linux on this machine, its only really good for nostalgia. Windows XP, as much as I love it, is simply not a viable option for a computer that is mainly in existence for web browsing, especially since its for an old man who doesn't really have a handle on what is / isn't a virus. For anyone who may be able to help me, I want to describe the errors. Keep in mind that it cannot be a hardware issue since Windows XP runs just fine. Now, on boot to either the LiveOS or directly to the installer, I see many horizontal lines shooting across the screen. All of the elements present appear to "jump" up and down, almost as if the monitor is breaking. The graphical glitches vary from distro to distro, oddly enough. For example, Zorin OS (Windows 7 -like) experiences this "jumping" most aggressively. I tried the Core (Standard) and Light editions of Zorin OS and they experienced the same trouble. Conversely, LXLE (a very light OS designed for old computers; Lubuntu - based) DOES experience this "jump," but more evidently displays vertical bars. These bars seem to have been lifted from the left side of the screen and dropped to the right (and vice - versa). The effect is that a window in the middle of the screen will be missing slices that will appear, magically almost, translated several inches to the left and / or right of the screen. These bars even update in real time. Now, I don't know how helpful that was, but I tried my best. I just have one last thing to say: on boot, I receive errors from the terminal, I don't know what they mean - its all gibberish to me. I have recorded my screen when they popped up, however, so I'm going to copy it all out over here. Hopefully, someone can make sense of it: [ 34.044144] sis630_smbus 0000:00:02.0: SIS630 compatible bus not detected, module (the screen cut off at this point, the rest of this line cannot be read, unfortunately) [ 36.758384] ata3.00: exception Emask 0x100 SAct 0x0 SErr 0x0 action 0x6 36.758403] ata3.00: failed command: SET FEATURES 36.758416] ata3.00: cmd ef/05:fe:00:00:00/00:00:00:00:00/40 tag 0 36.758416] res 51/04:fe:00:00:00/00:00:00:00:00/40 Emask 0x1 (device error) 36.7584534] ata3.00: status: { DRDY ERR } That's all. I really hope someone could lend a hand. Thanks.
