Help--Toshiba Laptop install HANG!

Postby xwin78 on Tue Mar 18, 2008 2:45 pm

Ok I convinced my big Bro to try mint on his laptop, but I get and x11 error time I try to boot the live disk.

I had him try it in safe graphics mode and this is the error I get:

this display server has been shut down 6 times in the last 90 seconds
it is likely that something bad is going on
waiting foe 2 minutes before trying again on display :0.

hardware list :

P4 2.0 ghz
512 DDR
Nvidia geForce 4 460GO VGA

Thanks for the Help

Best of luck,

Make sure you have the most up to date live CD the older ones dont work that well with tosh's, specially if its an ATI Graphics card.

try boot setting nosplash noapic noacpi thats how I got my cd working.
Keep her pinned!
