Hey guys, I have had this strange problem today with my computer and Mandriva Linux. I will start up the computer, everything is fine, the Mandriva OS is loading..then once the kernel is done loading and typically goes to the desktop.....the screen goes blank. What could this mean? Got the same problem when I loaded it from a LiveCD also.
*note* I am posting this from another computer.
Since you mentioned "today", does that mean everything was working yesterday ?
If so, do you recall any changes ?
Yes, my computer was knocked over, and the hardware was a bit out of place. I put everything back together though, so please do not say "check the hardware to see if it is out of "place".

In the case 2. I recommend you to pull everything out of motherboard and put them back again.
No worries, I have got it fixed.
