I am an extremely excited and inspired newbie trying Linux mint so that one day i could say "Windows what?"
But right now, i have an issue here while i am trying to install Mint onto my old Dell Inspiron 4000 that has an ATI Rage 128 M3 graphics card.
The install has gone through trouble free, but the LCD screen display is broken up into bars. About three vertical bars that seem to repeat the display as if the screen is broken. The display worked fine yesterday when XP was still installed and also when Mint starts to boot. The resolution is 800X600 and the only other option i get in display preferences is 640X480, which is not good enough.
I would really like to use Mint on this laptop, mostly for only banking purposes. But i am a newbie and have no idea where the problem could be and how to solve it.
Thanks in advance.
