I have an old 15.4" laptop with PIII 1.2GHz, 1GB RAM and 80GB Hard Drive. The graphic is Intel 82830 CGC
When I attempted to install Mint Linux 10, it showed the Mint Linux logo with the scrolling dots underneath and then it goes blank. There is nothing after that, no sound or using the Ctrl, Alt + F1 or Ctrl, Shift + F1
When I used Compatibility Mode, it will start up in text mode. I did access xorg.conf via sudo pico /etc/X11/xorg.conf and this is what came up
Identifier "Configured Video Device"
Identifier "Configured Monitor"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Monitor "Configured Monitor"
Device "Configured Video Device"
Mint Linux 9 XCFE, Peppermint Linux, and Debian XCFE does work, but not Mint Linux 10. Why? Same thing happened with Ubuntu 10.10.
Is there any ways of lower the refresh rate or resolution BEFORE install Mint Linux during the menu setup?
Any help please.
