G'day Jing, and Welcome to

Are you reinstalling 17.3 or 19.3 ?
I never do upgrades but that's a personal choice.

Instead I always perform fresh installations.

Here's a good video on how to upgrade 17.3 to 19.3.
Does this mean you have 19.3 on a thumb drive/usb stick .....and are prepared to do a clean install ?
So your not using the GPU at all and don't have a gui?

Is this a laptop or desktop?

CPU issues? More information please:-
