If Benjamin's suggestion does not help then you can try using the
"forcepae" option at boot. If memory serves 12.04 Ubuntu and Xubuntu?
supports this and I know the Ubuntu 14.04 beta 2 does but the 14.04
Xubuntu does not as of yet. None of the tweeners support the option
(12.10-13.10) Latest distros require pae to function according to my
research on older systems. "forcepae" allows for this adaptation. I
don't have my links to the discussions but a search on Pentium M
processors should yield some better explanations.
