Lubuntu
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Lubuntu/GetLubuntu

scroll down and find 32-bit or 64-bit, depending on what your processor is. 32-bit OS will run on either 32 or 64 bit cpu.

you're running a 686 32bit

I'd run a Debian 32 bit version don't get the net install unless you know how to connect your wifi from a dry start. you'd be better off getting the full install iso.

debain would be better for trouble shooting as well, its rather popular disto.

if you decised to get it then just

debian-8.3.0-i386-DVD-1.iso

should get up installed and running..

I'm downloading it for VBox to be sure...

Gee, this problem looks familiar to me. It' not the OS, it's the HDD, Check for bad sectors. It may just be old and worn out. I suggest a new HDD.

Since you are installing clean you better try the following distributions:

Linux Mint (this is very easy install and ready to run after reboot)
Salix (this is very quick install, very light, and very fast)
Absolute Linux (this install into very old machines and is stable as a rock Slackware)

You may download ISOs from http://iso.linuxquestions.org/ or go examine details at http://distrowatch.com/

Hope that helps. Good luck.

VOID Linux too is sweet fast install. U B setup with a root user and you get to learn learn learn how to make user account, and install only the apps you want on your system.
