no message means that process(es) called kded was killed.
Sounds more than odd, with those specs (Turion64, half a gig of ram), try
to see which processes consume most memory and/or cpu time. It could be because of a bad graphics card (or integrated), or something like that, but better make sure. I had problems with an Acer laptop before I found out Ubuntu didn't detect the correct display driver name, and once I switched that to the correct one (from the 'vesa'), it begun working slightly better (actually way better).
