    Have you booted up linux ok??? But when the linuxscreen comes up you get different colors and that errormessage???

    Boot up in singelusermode and change default init in /etc/inittab to lok like this

    With that you will boot up in textmode, login in as root when your system has booted up and run X -configure.

    To boot up in signle if you are using lilo... abort bootsequence with ctrl+x when you lilo screen comes up. Use the <tab> button to see which kernels you have. then type the kernelname with a 1 after to boot to singelusermode. like this

    linux-2.4.20 1

    The problem is that i have booted all linux OK and the screen started, this happened like 15 times. I can work well, I can use Abiword, Kspread, etc.
    But suddenly, like the 16th reboot i get that error.

    What happened?
    Someone told me that is an error code, but i don´t know how to fix it.

    Ah, that's the i845 chipset. As I remember it (I can't guarantee that I remember it correctly, though, since it was quite some time ago), it is currently unsupported in Linux. It's really as simple as that and not much can be done about it until someone writes drivers for it.

    I think that the drivers for the i810 chipset should be working relatively good in the meantime, though. But disable DRM and 3D acceleration; that's most likely not supported by the i810 drivers.

    Does that error actually disturb anything?
