Problem with Ubuntu

Hi guys, I need your help now.

The boyfriend of my friend has a laptop (old Dell Latitude x300), and it ran on Win XP. The boyfriend read something on the internet that Linux is better than Win and blah blah etc... So, he downloaded Ubuntu 13.10 on an USB (however, he didn't know what is he doing and he didn't create LiveUSB) and then he started to install ubuntu... He said the instalation was fine. However, when he logged in, he got only desktop without icons, without some panel or something like that. He had only the desktop background. He gave me the laptop and I have fix it. So, I tried to boot my Kali from my USB, it ran a while but then laptop writed:
This kernel requires the following features not present on the CPU:
pae

Unable to boot - please use a kernel appropriate for your CPU.

So, I tried boot Ubuntu 12.04, but I got the same like above. I used always 32-bit versions, and I don't know, why it doesn't want to work and why the his Ubuntu 13.1 tells only the picture of the desktop.
Should we to upgrade the laptop and then boot the ubuntu? Or should I find an older version ubuntu? Thanks for help...

-sorry, if something is wrong, my first topic
-sorry, my English isn't nice

PAE basically allows a 32-bit CPU to address more than the 4GB usually possible. I don't remember which version, but Ubuntu somewhat recently started assuming PAE support. So yea, either a newer computer or an older version of Ubuntu.
Assume that everything I say is or could be a lie.
