digip Posted May 19, 2007 Share Posted May 19, 2007 Hey guys. Quick qestiion. Just installed DeLi linux and got through everything fine. Using the default Lilo boot loader. Get to the prompt, start linux, login, and then i do a STARTX to bring up the gui. Then the screen goes blank and nothing returns. My monitor's power light starts to blink and I am thinking it cannot find a refresh rate compatable with the old monitor. I chose this distro because I wanted to start with somehting small and lightweight and maybe learn something in thr process. I also don't have much hd space and its an older pc. Few systems spec: Pentium 200mmx 2.5gig HD 32x cdrom 128megs of ram Ethernet card Standard stuff, but nothing that should interfere with the monitor. The monitor is an "Acer View 11d SVGA" I only lose the monitor when I start the gui, so is there a way to edit the system to change the default refresh rate or something? Any other ideas what could be causing it? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
