First I'd like to say I am about the newbiest of Newbies, never used Linux before however I am very good with windows based computers but thats about it,anyways my problem is as follows.
4.0 is the first Linux distro I could get to install I tried at least 5 other linux versions and none worked, all freezing during install, so today I was like what the heck why not try that new version...and it INSTALLED!!! woot! then after the install I rebooted and got nothing. I have managed to get it to run by doing some weird command thing i figured I could try while looking at video card problems oh yes and it would only install in safe grafics mode, anyways Sorry i can't remember the commands i entered but sudo ....blah reconfigure blah-xorg or something lol sorry!!! but when I restart I have to do that whole process over again it asks like 20 questions about video, keyboard, screen, ext... while I'm in the OS after answering all those questions I cannot get online, cannot change the video settings or it lets me but nothing actually happens. I am using a Nvidea GeForce 7600GT 256mb card running a P4 prescott processor, 1gb kingston value ram (2x 512mb), 80gb sata HD, i have a Chaintech Mobo, floppy disk, and a cd/dvd drive. Oh and this is running on a vizio 32in LCD HDTV. I just dont know what to do to get things running correctly I have the driver cd's for the mobo and everything but linux wont run .exe's? or just the ones on the disk wont load when I click on the installs, Thanks for any help anyone can be and if you need more info let me know! thanks!
