    Intel Display Drivers for Mandrake 10.1


    Hi all,

    Can someone help me out here? I loaded mandrake 10.1 on MSI MEGABOOK L720 (1GB ram, 100GB HD, Intel 915GM/GMS,910GML Express Chipset,), after loading, I restarted my computer. When it rebooted, the screen is blank. Even after trying in fail safe mode, same thing. I reinstalled 5 times nothing.

    Is your bootloader working?

    Microsofthater. First of all, you should start a new thread to ask a question.

    Can you give any more details about the blank screen? What happens on startup? The computer should POST and some image from the bios should be displayed. After that, the bootloader will start. If your bootloader is working, linux should start to load and you should see something like
    Linux version 2.6.16-2-486 (Debian 2.6.16-17) (waldi@debian.org) (gcc version 4.0.4 20060630 (prerelease) (Debian 4.0.3-4)) #1 Sat Jul 15 21:23:01 UTC 2006
    BIOS-provided physical RAM map:
    and several pages of text after that. If you're getting this far, then you have a display problem like easykill above.

    During your install, what do you remember about the boot loader? Where did you install it? Did you use grub or lilo?
