Hey all, new to Mint and I can't wait to get started!
When I try to boot the LiveCD normally, it loads the splash screen, waits around for a while, and then goes dark. Unlike some of the other problems I found on the forums, there is no sound played and nothing happens when I hit any of my keys (including capslock [the capslock LED doesn't turn on]).
When I try to boot the LiveCD in compatibility mode, it hangs after it loads something at about 17 seconds in. It's something that begins w/ 'S' version 3.3 by Pillip Louphin or something if that helps any. I can type and hit enter, but nothing happens.
I've let both sit for 5-10 minutes three or four times and I haven't had any luck. I don't think it's a problem with the disk for two reasons: the disk was ordered from LinuxCD.org, and I've seen this computer not be able to load an openSUSE LiveCD in much the same way, and I later verified that that particular disk worked on my friends desktop.
I'm using an HP Compac 6715b, built with Vista but with XP currently installed, if it helps any.
Thanks in advance, guys. I'm really itchin to get this installed
