    The issue is that you didn't configure graphics during the install. If you reinstall, then just remember to configure the graphics, its an easy fix and mandriva is a pretty short install, assuming you didn't update it.

    If you don't want to re-install you could run these commands:

    #urpmi gdm
    #urpmi xdm
    #urpmi kdm
    You only need one of these, they are Window managers. The best in my opinion is gdm, xdm is very ugly and kdm is not as functional or customizable. This may or may not fix your problem but I would really recommend just re-installing. This is only if you don't want to re-install.

    become a superuser, and run XFdrake:

    $ su
    (enter your root password)
    $ XFdrake
    XFdrake can be run in non-graphical mode and will allow you to configure and test your system's graphics before starting X.
