Boot process interrupted

Postby gemini46 on Sun Apr 05, 2009 2:01 pm

Hello to all. While not a 'new' Mint user, I'm certainly not at the level of many of you. I thoroughly enjoy reading this forum and find the information it contains extremely helpful. So, my thanks to all of you who contribute either problems or solutions to them. Failing to find a similar problem in the Forum, or just not knowing the key words to search with, here is my problem. When running Elyssa either from a live CD or from a Linux dedicated hard drive on my PC, the boot process is interrupted by a flashing screen full of colors and symbols. This does not happen every time I boot up. It's an intermittent problem. It also occurs at sometimes when my monitor has gone to sleep and I awaken it. During the boot process, this screen appears between the splash screen and the login screen. When I get it, I have to warm boot the PC repeatedly until I get a clean boot. Sometimes it takes 2 or 3 warm boots to get a clean boot even with a live CD. I didn't seem to have the problem with Darnya. The problem occurred both with Ubuntu 8.04 and Elyssa live CD and full install. I know there's a solution to my problem. I am running Mint on a P4 PC with a ABIT IS7 mobo and Intel 865PE chip set and 2Gb of memory. My graphics card is an NVIDIA Asylum GeForce FX 5700 Ultra 128 MB AGP Insane 3D Graphics card. I'm a highly satisfied Mint user and enjoy the freedom it provides from Microsoft Windows. I want to compliment everyone involved with the development and support of the Ubuntu/Mint distros on a great job! :D

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Sorry Haase. I'll repost this message and break it down into multiple paragraphs. Thanks for the heads up.
