i replaced my nvida 32mb and installed a ati 8500/8500 LE on my computer and put in the bea cd. it didnt show anything. it showed the linuxmint bea screen and asked to start/install start in safe graphics or boot from hard disk. i clicked start install and after that it was just a blank screen

no like bea isnt installed at all. i need to install it. and when i start the comp with the cd it doesnt load up. the cd is fine because it works on my other comp.
any suggestions?
im running an AMD 64 3200+ with 1024mb ram and a ATI radeon 8500/8500 LE 128mb video card

You can try to switch back to console (CTRL+ALT+F1) and edit sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf to change the driver to vesa, then CTRL+ALT+BACKSPACE to restart X.
