I just tried installing Mandriva 2007 Free Live CD on my compaq pc and everything seemed to install fine without any errors. But when I try to login, after it asks me for my login and username, I get the spinning blue cirle and no desktop. It's locking up and I can't get passed it. I just finished an install on my laptop that has worked flawlessly with the same install disc. One thing I did notice during the installation on the compaq was that it didn't ask me to setup my hardware or other software like it did for my laptop install and I am not sure why. I thought maybe I could try to reinstall, which I have tried numerously, and see if my nvidia video card was setup correctly, but it wasn't giving me options to do so. It does however, when booting from the CD, work great and gives me the nvidia logo when loading. Thanks for any help you can provide.
