i AM USING A D610 AND I DID NOT BACK IT UP BEFORE ERASING THE DISC AND INSTALLING UBUNTU, SO I DONT HAVE THE WINDOWS XP DISC TO REBOOT

Please don't post in all capitals. It's harder to read and looks like you are shouting. SO DON'T.

The screen shot you posted will only work for users of your system. It is not Web accessible. If you use a service like imageshack or Dropbox and make a URL out of the image, we can see it.

There is no Ubuntu 10.0. There was Ubuntu 10.04 which is now EOL (end of life). There is also no Ubuntu 14.0. There is Ubuntu 14.04 which is LTS and supported til April 2019.

The screen shot seems to be key to this question. Once we have a URL we can look at, we can advise. Alternatively if you want to describe the situation we can advise from there

Thanks

Found xp install disc reinstalling xp
Then I will download 14.04 and the USB creator thing and install it alongside xp. Is that an feasible solution or should I just install the 14.04 by itself since I have the old xp disc

If you reinstall XP, you will loose GRUB on the MBR and will need to reinstate it from LiveCD.

Alternatively, you could get an XP single boot (You will not be able to upgrade XP as it is dead, I have no idea why you are still using it). Then use XP to wipe the old Ubuntu install of. You can then boot to the Ubuntu 14.04 CD and install Ubuntu to the new freed space.

You can restore your user data from your backups.
