System crash on login

Postby karmafarmer on Mon Oct 22, 2012 9:31 am

Hi, I'm having problems with a Mint4Win installation.

I have used the Mint 13 MATE edition, 64 bit.

My PC is an Athlon 64 with Windows XP Pro.

The installation seemed to go fine. The only problem I have is when I log in, the screen goes completely white and the PC crashes. This is after watching the taskbar load - it seems to happen just before the menu icon appears, and while the Welcome App is starting up - I'm not sure...

While in GDM everything works as normal. I can Ctrl+Alt+F1 and log in that way so I can get to command line, but it breaks when I log in. I have to reset with the power button to get back.

Hope somebody can help :)
