Hi Federico,

It is valuable information, that your old computer works best with
Lubuntu 13.10. I have an old Compaq Presario 5640 with Pentium II and
Rage graphics, where the 12.04 based versions work, but not later
versions. So with several alternatives we increase the chances that at
least one of them works in a particular computer.

Best regards
