Compaq F500 no desktop

Postby edgeofthewoods » Sun Dec 23, 2007 11:55 am

Morning folks. I tried to install Daryna on my sons Compaq F500. The CD boots an goes though configuration but the the screens goes black and nothing else. There is no sound from the CD drive or any responce from teh machine. Kubuntu 7.10 rus fine but he wanted to try Mint. I run it well on a HP A6009N and it works great. Any ideas? Or is there an alternate install CD available?

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
