Where can I download Ubuntu 10.04 from ?
I've searched around the web but can't find anything, the Ubuntu site keeps directing me to 12.04
Reason for wanting the older O/S is my little Asus netbook flew on it I've since upgraded through 11 and now 12.04 and I can only run in recovery mode as my screen is completly black when run normally and the brighness controls have no effect.
Netbooks were not intended to run Ubuntu 12.04 (or really anything beyond the 10.x series). As for getting 10.04, the LTS (long-term support) release is your best bet: http://releases.ubuntu.com/lucid/

Thanks for that, I've downloaded 10.04 now just need to connect it to an external monitor so I can see whats on the screen

Thanks for that I'll give peppermint2 a try.

Installed Umbuntu 9.50 which boots up ok and screen and brightness controls are all fine but no wireless connection and 9.50 is no longer supported for upgrades.
So at the moment I can either use the netbook using a wired connection to my router or I can use it wireless on 10.04 if I plug it into an external monitor. Both of which of course defeat the purpose of having a netbook !
What model netbook are you using?
It's an Asus Eeepc 1001P originally came with Windows 7 starter, ran fine on Ubuntu 10.04 until I updated it.

I'm sadly considering giving up on Linux and going back to using on of Mr Gates O/S
Suggestion -- google rokytnji and ask him before going back to Pane (it's optional, but your choice)!
So been watching youtube to learn how to use the terminal And managed to change the command line as suggested here
So now I can see the screen, but the brightness controls still don't work and it stuck on a very low brightness setting.
Have you tried Fn + up arrow and Fn + down arrow? Just a guess.
