An old computer is a computer with used hardware.
The hardware can fail or act up at any time.

In troubleshooting do not overlook anything.

Common causes of problems:

Loose connections
Disconnect/reconnect any item including stuff plugged into motherboard.
Dust in computer.
Blocked cooling fan inlets and outlets.
Dust inside a CD player. (clean using cleaning disc)
Look for obvious damage on motherboard. (bulging capacitors) Bad capacitors will cause anything to happen.
Test memory. Run a memory test program like memtest86.
Run testing programs to test condition of storage devices.
Reset computer bios to default settings.

Graphics problems:
Check settings in computer bios dealing with graphics.
Try operating with a basic graphics driver like Vesa.

Component failure can happen at any time to any component.
Usually you can suspect failure in this order.
Power supply.
Hard drive
Graphics card.
motherboard. (older than 5 years suspect first)

The things they do not tell you, are usually the clue to solving the problem.

If memtest reports part of the ram is damaged you may be able to skip the damaged part

Subject description: ISORecorder, Rufus, Unetbootin, Plop boot manager, LinuxLiveUsb

I want to share some other tools for creating a Live Puppy CD in WINXP or a puppy USB Flash Drive. Your mileage may vary, (YMMV) Use the tool that makes you happy and is useful for your needs.

http://isorecorder.alexfeinman.com/isorecorder.htm a windows power utility to burn .ISO file images to disk from windows menu. You can find versions for WIN XP or WIN Vista or WIN 7.
http://isorecorder.alexfeinman.com/W7.htm Burn a CD or DVD with WIN 7.

I see Linuxliveusb.com was mentioned before to write .ISO file to a USB Flash Drive.

I like rufus.exe http://rufus.akeo.ie a single .exe file for windows to burn a .ISO image file to a USB Flash disk drive and make it bootable.

I think PuppyLinux might have the Unetbootin utility, available to install from the Puppy Package Manager. http://unetbootin.github.io/

http://launchpad.net/unetbootinn/trunk/613/+download/unetbootin-windows-613.exe Specific Windows version 6.13 for Unetbootin

Happy Linuxing with Puppy.
Older computer? Use older puppy versions 4.12 or 4.3.1 or 5.7.1 http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/

Newer computer? try 6.3 Slacko either 32 bit or 64 bit. http://01micko.com/blog/ http://slacko.eezy.xyz/download.html Download Slacko 6.3 here

Older computer BIOS wont boot from USB Flash or CD drive? Use Plop Boot Manager or PlopKexec or Plpbt.bin.

I used plopbt.bin to boot TinyCore Linux on a 64 megabyte DRAM computer. http://tinycorelinux.net/ http://distro.ibiblio.org/tinycorelinux/6.x/x86/release/
