Sounds like your disk drive is dead. Try replacing it with another.

Note: googling for "Failed command : READ DMA" gives a good number of posts with solutions.

i,2, find that ubuntu 12.04 works as well as xp. that's why my other desktop is staying on 10.04.

I am still working with Ubuntu 10.10, no problems there.My problem has always been the upgrading to a newer version. Upgrading over the internet doesn't work, it always ends up in disaster, so if (and I say if) I want to upgrade to a newer version I always save all my stuff, wipe out the whole partition and install the new Ubuntu in that partition and put my saved stuff back in. Now, I don't do that every six months or so because it's well...
I have a multiboot system and once in a while I do upgrade to a newer version but only when I feel like and BTW since my PC's are 6 years old (Desktop-Laptop) I wonder if the newer Ubuntu's will still work on my machines, but I am pretty sure I'll give it a try.

Both, 10.04 and 10.10, have reached their end of life and are unsupported. You should upgrade to a supported version, so that you get bugfixes and, more important, security updates.

12.04.1 LTS
with the " Long Term Solution " I do not have to worry about relearning for 5 yrs. This was the only reason I even retried Ubuntu .... after it did not work in previous editions ..The learning experience was not that involved . Like early windows , it is easy and functional . I finally got what I wanted , affordable and easy to use functionality that will be good for years to come . I read alot about how people did not like this GUI , but it works , and does not slow down the computer system .
