    I have been trying to run live Knoppix 7 or Ubuntu 12.10 VIA DVD, or USB. I will set the BIOS for either DVD or USB (depending on the media being used) and Knoppix will load up to the point of setting persistent values. After Knoppix has partitioned the USB I get nothing but a black screen.
    Is this a possible problem with the video driver? because I thought it would take you to a shell if that were the issue....
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hello and welcome!

    It does sound like a video problem, though don't rule out other stuff just yet.

    I would first try to boot into text-only mode, or a non-frame buffer mode, at least. According to the Knoppix boot options, you can try this:

    Code:
    knoppix vga=normal
    You can also look into Knoppix Expert mode.

    Also, check out the output of dmesg and see if there is anything in there that might tip you off to hardware issues.
