Can't see Boot - RAINBOW screen

Postby Watever44 on Sun Apr 21, 2013 11:21 pm

I have been trying to install mint 14.1 mate 64 bit on an

Dell Inspiron 1501
AMD Turion 2X64bit 1.6ghz
1gig of ram
ATI Radeao Xpress 1150

Been running windows xp 32 bit for the last 6 years and was asleep for the last 3 years.
Since I switched work and the new one do not give me a laptop, I decided to get that one out, reformat and install linux.

I see the normal boot wainting screen, then it start flashing a little and I see a rainbow screen.
I tryed the "compability boot" with the same issue. I see everything loading and after 1-2 minutes, I get to the same point.
The "integrity check" doesn't work either, cause I see the same.


I also reburn the DVD just in case that could be an issue, but same results.

I think it's a video thing, but not sure what to do anymore after fallowing people with "black" screen without sucess.

Can anyone help ?

Should I just go 32 bit or what ?
