    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.

    Anytime after boot ... or if you can as MikeTbob says after login. It should drop you to a terminal and either have you already logged in or allow you to login.

    The first thing to sort is if Linux will not boot and function or if it's just the GUI that will not function (which is likely to be caused by a graphics card issue).

    ... it's also worth listing the boot options you have tried - like nopcmcia so we don't repeat them

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    That gets us back to bios and firmware updates. Have you tried contacting the web site for the system vendor about that?

    :S whenever I try contacting them through their website, I click send then I am sent to a page containing what looks like VB Script? Then nothing happens.

    Ha, I can get over fedora I guess. Ubuntu isn't so bad. I still just really think the issue is connected to the monitor or videocard? Idunno, weirdest thing remains that I can't for the life of me get the same resolution after login as is automatically set in the login screen? I've tried all listed available resolution options.. Can't help but think the issues are connected?

    What video driver are you using? Have you tried the generic vesa driver?
