Monitor goes to standby mode during installation
During RedHat 9.0 installation ( after monitor & keyboard checking ), my monitor goes on standby mode, even restarting installation process from the beginning doesn't work. In other word... it just hang without any display .Well.. if RedHat 9.0 giving problem... version 8.0 is worst than that, it doesn't load the installation process at all.... it just keep reading ( from CD-ROM ) without no display. Could it be graphic card or monitor issue ?
Nvidia Geforce FX 5200
Windows related issue ? hmm....
I reformat the entire hard disk and installed Windows XP ( with Service Pack 2 ). I allocate about 5 GB for Linux installation in the same hard disk. When 1st 3 attempts doesn't work... i reformat again the hard disk and try with Linux installation 1st.. same problem :(
Windows .. no issue at all
Nope.. no problem with Windows. Ok, I have Knoppix.. i'll give a try
Re: Monitor goes to standby mode during installation
Certainly sounds like it. I am not familiar with RH but there must be a text based program there that enables you to change the settings. Do you know how to get to the Command Line by swithching the Runlevel? OS's I'm familiar with use Runlevel 3 and enable you to Boot to that level by typing in 3 which puts you in text mode where you can take care of problems like this.
