    Unhappy Cannot use any install cd! help!


    I find myself in the situation of having to reinstall linux.

    Problem: no cd manages to install

    I have now Kanotix installed (even if currently I cannot acess it because of windows re-installation). I've tried PCLinuxOS, Kubunto (both last release) and the same cd I used to install Kanotix in the first place. None work:
    - Both Kanotix and Kubunto freeze after a while.
    - PCLinuxOs manages to identify an error and gives me a simple console (which I have no idea what to do with)

    I would post this in the forum of the distros but since it doesn't work with any I'm afraid of a more generic problem.

    Is this even normal? I have a 4 year old laptop, could this be the problem

    Hi kotoko,

    Welcome to the LinuxForums,

    it could be graphics card problem.
    at what point CDs are freezing? do CDs throw any error message?

    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
