    the problem is due to wrong frequency

    Linspire is mis-configuring your system monitor.

    Is thier Safe graphics mode or Safe mode during installation.If yes try it

    also try
    Code:
    vga=769
    as argument at boot promt before installation

    Hey,
    I guess its bit late. Anyways did you provide any kind of installation option?
    Check you hardware specs mainly your graphics card and monitor with linspire h/w compatibility support list.
    LinspireGuide - Hardware Compatibility

    If everything seems fine post your machines hardware specs to us.

    I've never used Linspire, but look for cheatcodes available through the F-keys right after the CD begins to spinup, but before it actually begins to boot. If you find codes giving you options for refresh rates, vga, resolution, or other video options, that's what you want to try.
