kernel problems

I installed Ubu 13.04, but was unhappy, so I thought I'd go back to 12.04

I am having major problems.

The newer kernels, above 3.2 will not boot.

What is the difference between 3.2.something.pae, which is what I had, and 3.5.something.generic

Shouldn't generic work on my Toshiba laptop just as well?? What is pae??

The Linux kernel includes full PAE mode support starting with version 2.3.23,[16] enabling access of up to 64 GB of memory on 32-bit machines.

A PAE-enabled Linux kernel requires that the CPU also support PAE.

Actually the ending is .generic.pae

But the newer kernels just say .generic And they don't seem to want to work. Slowly I'm thinking, this laptop is sick inside.

But I can load Fedora 18 with new kernels no problem.
