Hey everyone. New to mint and having tons of trouble. Every Live-Cd (knopix 5.1.1, ubuntu 6.06, ubuntu 7.10 standard, 64bit, alternate, Fedora, MINT 4) I have boots fine and dandy on all my laptops and school machines, but I cant get any distro to work on my home system.
Asus p5n32-sli deluxe
2x geforce 7950gt-sli
with every attempt i end up with a flashing text cursor in the top right corner and then a black screen. I can CTRL+ALT+F1 for the terminal
I have booted with all these options in every combination with the same outcome.
in terminal i have backed up /etc/X11/xorg.conf to /etc/X11/xorg.conf and altered monitor settings found on the this and other forums.
STARTX in terminal results: server is already active for display 0.
I have disabled all Bios Options and Enabled all Bios Options. I have the latest Bios (non-beta)
I have disabled and enabled SLI.
I really prefer the mint distro and would love to get this working. As you can probably tell i'm going stir crazy with this. Its been 1week+1day since i started.
ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED (except alternate-cd ubuntu: don't see the point of installing if it doesn't work)
