    Disable Plug 'n Play in BIOS (if it has that feature)
    Boot with one of the following paramenters

    linux noapic <-- Didn't work
    linux nolapic <-- Didn't work
    linux noapic nolapic <-- Didn't work

    If that does not help, boot in rescue mode and launch the Mandriva Control Centers gfx setup tool from the terminal as root, typing "XFdrake" and use a basic vesa mode. (the whole control center can be launched by typing "mcc" as root). Then use the terminal to set up software mirrors for easyurpmi
    Code:
    urpmi.addmedia --update updates ftp://ftp.belnet.be/linux/mandrake/o.../main_updates/ with media_info/synthesis.hdlist.cz
    urpmi.addmedia main ftp://ftp.belnet.be/linux/mandrake/o...586/media/main with media_info/synthesis.hdlist.cz
    urpmi.addmedia contrib ftp://ftp.belnet.be/linux/mandrake/o.../media/contrib with media_info/synthesis.hdlist.cz
    Once these are added, update the X package.

    urpmi Xorg (or "urpmi --auto-select" for a complete system upgrade)

    After that, try to set up graphics again and test the setting with the "startx" command.

    Good luck.
    I tried the three commands you gave me. The first and third hang at the same spot, right after swap file partition. The second hangs somewhere near the beginning.

    If booting under 'failsafe' is rescue mode, then that hangs right after swap partition as well.

    Any more ideas?
