Hi I am a noob to linix but i decided to dl knoppix to try it out so i dled burnt it onto a cd and then started to boot it but it said i needed to choose a screen resolotion or scan so i scaned and it then gave me a aoption and a b option and i chose a so it start to going over the devices and when it get to my video card it auto configers and then the screen go balnk and nothing. i also made a phlak boot cd and it boots exsalky the same way exsept it works allso i have tried 3 dif video card but there all fairly old so guy's got any ideas?
Did you try 1)choosing 'B' or 2)selecting a resolution manually?
i did try choosing b it also gave me 9 options for other resolotions and i tried 2 and 8 for those ill go chek what res those were
ok so the res are
That must be a REALLY small display?
i think it just leaves out a 0 but later in when it detects my vdieo card it says using 800x600 and some thing like 1000x800 1200x1000
Having trouble getting a screen after boot. Running (atempting) Knoppix STD. I can not seem to get the vid to respond. It boots up fine, then I have to hard key to shots down. In between ,no screen. Im sure this is a common issue. Im running Nvedia GeForce 2 MX/MX400. I have 2 of them. How do I get them to show me a screen? Any one else have this problem? :?: :idea: :!: :shock:
