That picture was when I tried to boot Xubuntu 14.04 from a LiveUSB and 
yes, I have not added "space" between "--" and "forcepae" so that was 
possibly the reason why I got that error on the taken picture that 
Alberto included which I attached to the bug report :)

My main issue is not booting the system. That is a minor issue and it is 
The main problem here is that the machine is not usable. Almost most if 
not all is lagging after logging to the desktop.

Okay, this machine is playing hide and seek with me.
Xubuntu 12.04 (Kernel: 3.2.0-69) is working now without any problem.

Yesterday, I was trying to install "xubuntu-restricted-extras" and it 
never worked neither from Terminal, nor Synaptic nor Ubuntu Software 
Center. The machine was frozen when I tried and it did not even let me 
finish the command "sudo apt-get install xubuntu-restricted-extras" ...

Now, it seems fine.

I have rebooted many times yesterday with no luck.
It seems better today.

No idea what is going on with that machine ...

Maybe it is the load on the CPU because with such weak machine, it is 
very easy to see the CPU usage at 100% and very easy to produce that.
