    There is nothing in my bios that refers to ACPI or APM. I look under Advanced CMOS Setup, Standard CMOS Setup and under Peripheral Setup.

    you can do a search for the specific specs of your computer.

    You don't have this issue with any other distro? How about a different version of MDK?

    Also, you may need to upgrade your bios based on this post:

    Thanks I didnt even think about that. Im going to update the bios and see what happens. But Mepis works without the bios update. I dont have problems with Mepis. Fedora Core does the same thing, but it does it before I can even install. I didnt try any of the other ones. Im going to try doing a Gentoo installation. I heard its pretty good as well. They say its for advanced users but I want to learn as much as I can.

    I'm having the exact same problem

    I am having the same problem. I just need help with it.

    I have installed Linux Mandriva 2005 limited edition. I got it with a magazine.
    Installation went great, however linux or failsafe wont boot. Well it starts to boot and then starts to boot again and again and again. Keeps rebooting. I really want this to work. Its my first time with any linux operating system and I just want it to work. Can anyone help please?????? I have posted on other forums and no one seems to want to help, I get no replys. Hopefully someone here can help me (THE NEWB).

    Well here are the machines specs I installed it on.

    I disabled plug and play in bios like suggested.

    Installed on E-machine T1740

    intel celeron 1.7 ghz proc
    768 mb ram
    two cd drives
    one floppy drive
    845gl chipset onboard graphics
    onboard sound
    also pci nvidia geforce fx 5200 128mb ram
    also pci soundblaster live 24 bit

    Anyone who can help me get Mandrivia working, would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time.

    By the way. I never actually got Mandrake 10 Community working on my laptop. Im a little more experienced now, but I was able to get Mandriva 2005 on it. I dont use Mandriva for my everyday use. I just installed it to see if it works and what it looks like. I use Gentoo Linux now. It is so much better than any other distro that I have used. But you should try different ones on your own to see which one feels the best for you.

    Have you tried any other distro yet?

    I found that Mepis Linux and Fedora Core work on almost any system. http://www.mepis.org http://fedora.redhat.com/download/

    Great way to start off if you want to use Linux.
