Hello @Alireza.r and welcome to linux.org :)

In your current Ubuntu, can you go to Terminal (Ctrl-Alt-t) and enter

Code:
inxi -Fxs
and give us the output? The part I am particularly is that which says CPU and then flags. Mine looks like this

CPU: Quad core Intel Core i7-4700MQ (-MT-MCP-)
arch: Haswell rev.3 cache: 6144 KB
flags: (lm nx sse sse2 sse3 sse4_1 sse4_2 ssse3 vmx) bmips: 19157

Thanks

Basically flags show what type of instructions sets your processor can run.

Minimum these days are sse2 and above is what is needed to run websites and stream video etc without painful results.:)

I could explain deeper but the important part to understand is that a minimum of sse2 means you are good to go.:)

Not a real good explanation but I think you get the drift.

If you go into the terminal and copy and paste this command inxi -Fxz and look at the information of the cpu it will tell you what flags your processor has / runs.

Copy and paste your results to a post so that the wise wizard or anyone else advise as needed.

Capta I'll give you a short answer for now, and more details in a relevant Post or Thread, perhaps soon?

"lm" is an important one, and "sse2" likewise.

lm stands for "Long Mode" and means this machine is capable of 64-bit architecture.

SSE2 is Streaming SIMD Extensions 2, where SIMD means Single Instruction, Multiple Data.

SSE2 is required by certain Internet Browsers (includes Firefox, nowadays) to be able to work, and often goes hand in hand with PAE compared to non-PAE issues which can restrict usage of certain Linux on old computers.

So the good news for the OP (Original Poster, that is you @Alireza.r ) is that his computer can handle 64-bit, and modern browsers, but not without difficulty since he has only 1 GB RAM (memory).

@Alireza.r - your first 2 - 3 lines of the "inxi" output would be useful.

Mine, for example shows, in part, this:

Machine:
Type: Laptop System: Dell product: Inspiron 5770 v: N/A
serial: <root required>
Mobo: Dell model: 0XH3XD v: A00 serial: <root required> UEFI: Dell
v: 1.1.5 date: 04/03/2018

So that tells me that my MAKE of computer is Dell, and the MODEL is Inspiron 5770.

That would help answer @arochester .

We appreciate English may not be your first language :)
