Hi everyone. I've faithfully installed Mint 4 for the first time. I am new to linux and how to find answers. I am not new to computers.
I've got the right ATI driver installed and I've set my resolution to 1280x768 with out a problem. I've not evoked any 3D or fancy graphic heavy items like compiz-fu
The problem is when I boot up it gets pasted the splash and grub menu but the signal to the monitor goes off and thus black screen. If I play with the only 2 options in grub when pressing F1 I can randomly get it to boot to desktop. Does anyone have any advice as to what I can do to resolve this annoying issue?
I've been thinking that ATI 8500 cards just are flaky and may go buy one. I've got AGP or PCI slots, which is the best 100 dollar card to get with Mint that will work without a hitch and will run all the heavy graphics stuff like the cube...
