you have 191 mb memory, the installer requires 256

  dickens 22:08 24 Feb 09

I want to install Unbuntu on my old laptop which has 192 mb RAM and 11 gb Hard drive. I have down loaded the ISO file and burn a cd copy. I get the message

"you have 191 mb memory, the installer requires 256mb"

This old laptop has windows xp home installed but I have reused the copy of windows on a newer laptop and want to pass this older one to my grand daughter for homework (and I suspect facebook)
Can anyone offer help

Yes,get more memory.

It's possible that you have 256 Mb of memory and your onboard video uses 64MB leaving 192 Mb available. However looks like he only answer is as TULLIE says - more memory- Use the crucial site to scan your memory to get an exact match. Laptops are fussy about memory.
