DVD boots fine and when X session starts, my monitor is 'out of range', so my screen just goes blank.
I have a similar problem (with ALL recent distros that I have tried). Try adding "nomodeset" to the kernel command line.
(even the "forcevesa" of the "compatible" menu option doesn't work -- it has to be "nomodeset")

...and don't forget all the fun of trying to manually configure wifi on a laptop with Debian. It may be rock-solid once installed, but getting ther feelslike crewing rocks. Just to get a different prespective, I installed the Gnome version and with a sudo ap-get installed Xfce4. I figure whatever changes happen with Gnome will trickle down eventually, and I'll use Xfce until I want to just try something different. Fifteen minutes later, I'll be using Xfce again, but I'll give the new Gnome3/MATE a chance.
