I'm trying to install Linux Ubuntu 8.04 Desktop Edition, after a while loading it will say error and some other words.
I also Tried to run it without installing and same error occurred.

Why is that happening?

When i tried to install on other computers it worked.

Does the computer meet the requirements?
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installat...temRequirements
Bare Minimum requirements

It should be possible to get Ubuntu running on a system with the following minimum hardware specification, although it is unlikely that the system would run well. You should use the Alternate install CD to attempt such an installation.

* 300 MHz x86 processor
* 64 MB of system memory (RAM)
* At least 4 GB of disk space (for full installation and swap space)
* VGA graphics card capable of 640x480 resolution
* CD-ROM drive or network card

Recommended minimum requirements

Ubuntu should run reasonably well on a computer with the following minimum hardware specification. However, features such as visual effects may not run smoothly.

* 700 MHz x86 processor
* 384 MB of system memory (RAM)
* 8 GB of disk space
* Graphics card capable of 1024x768 resolution
*

Sound card
*

A network or Internet connection

Note: All 64-bit (x86-64) PCs should be able to run Ubuntu. Use the 64-bit installation CD for a 64-bit-optimised installation.

the rest of the error message would be helpful. Check the CD for scratches dust and if possible clean the CD/DVD Drive
