So i am willing to admit that i am not adept that much when it comes to Linux being as this is my first hand at trying a UNIX based OS of any kind and as such i am a little lost at times. The problem i am currently having is that after installing Mandriva and using it for awhile i reboot my system kick back over to my XP partition do some work then reboot again and kick into the Mandriva partition it loads up everything is fine and dandy and then poof i cant see diddly no i know it loaded cause amarok opened up and started playing. Is this a corrupt display driver or is my monitor dying which i find hard to believe cause it works fine in windows. So any help here would be awesome thanks.
