I would look at a less demanding DE and a distro that packs in quite a bit of extra kit as standard. Voyager Linux comes to mind first.

Google it yourself because the site is in French and we only permit English language links here. You can try the latest 13.04 version first and if that doesn't play ball, also give the 12.04 LTS a try.

Thanks i have added one more slot of Mem so have 1Gb of mem

i remenber now that when i first started install the Debian 7.0 wheezy it asked me for IPI2200 card drivers software,and suggest to put in the usb drive with the drivers in the port,and then continue,i did that but it won't reed the usb drive during booting.

somebody suggested Lubuntu13 what you think?

Depends entirely on what you think. Someone suggested Sphinux here recently. I took one look at it, went "yuk", and dumped it. Others might think it's great. Lubuntu is certainly a well respected distro although I have no experience with it.

First, instead of directly installing the Linux distro on your laptop, why don't you first run it from a live CD, or a USB, and then see if things work properly. If not, you do not have to go through the procedure of the actual install.

Secondly, regarding issues with drivers and all, it's better if you post these in the forum of the distros.. because you are most likely to get a proper response there, and not here. Here, you might get a response only when the hardware of some other member is exactly similar to yours, otherwise not.

On the forum, the developers can give you a proper reply regarding the drivers and other hardware issues. Their forum is the proper place.

Here on this forum, we can only provide general help.
