    Strange problem...


    Hey guys, I have had this strange problem today with my computer and Mandriva Linux. I will start up the computer, everything is fine, the Mandriva OS is loading..then once the kernel is done loading and typically goes to the desktop.....the screen goes blank. What could this mean? Got the same problem when I loaded it from a LiveCD also.

    *note* I am posting this from another computer.

    Since you mentioned "today", does that mean everything was working yesterday ?
    If so, do you recall any changes ?

    Yes, my computer was knocked over, and the hardware was a bit out of place. I put everything back together though, so please do not say "check the hardware to see if it is out of "place".

    Still, it is obvious that your problem has nothing common with the OS. There can be only two possible causes:
    1. One of your PC's hardware parts is damaged (memory card, sound card, graphic card...)
    2. Something went out of slots and it gets no or just insufficient electric power supply.

    In the case 2. I recommend you to pull everything out of motherboard and put them back again.
    If you need a CD/DVD catalogizer, give a try to my program:
