Graphical Disaster at boot

Postby sheffne » Wed Sep 02, 2009 3:25 pm

I am using the latest Linux Mint (just installed today). The first time I booted into it (after install) it was fine and worked. I shut down and turned it on a bit later, and now right before I get desktop usually I get what someone described as a Graphics Disaster, there are a whole bunch of lines and squares but nothing readable at all. I think that the system loads normally in the background, cause I can hear login sounds.

I am running it on AMD Athlon 64 3400, 1.5GB RAM, and ATI Radeon 9600SE. I think the problem lies in the video card, but if so, why was I able to get to desktop during install and after the first reboot?

Thank you in advance.

Try booting into recovery mode, and then choose the "fix graphics problems" option...

Return to “Installation & Boot”
