Thread: Cannot boot Live CD (monitor LCD blinks)

  1. #1

    Default Cannot boot Live CD (monitor LCD blinks)

    I downloaded OpenSUSE 11 yesterday. On booting the Live CD, I get the verbose boot showing the details of the boot process. But at sometime (may be at the end of the boot process) the monitor goes blank with only the LED of the monitor blinking. Any solutions?

    Lets cover the basics. Which 11.0 live version are you attempting to install, KDE or Gnome? Does the downloaded CD pass the MD5 checksum test? This test can be performed prior to burning the CD,in YaST, or during install.

    Also, during booting, which option was selected between live, new install, etc.

    Downloaded OpenSUSE 11.0 KDE 4 i386 Live CD.
    Passed the MD5 checksum
    Burned it on the CD, and checked the CD for defects. No problem there.
    I chose the live session. I've to try the failsafe mode, what's the username and password for the live session?

    I tried with Failsafe. The same thing, the LED blinks rapidly.

    Can you choose a lower resolution at the splash screen? Can you try another monitor?

    I have tried at the lowest resolution. My monitor is quite old about 7 yrs old.

    It may not be the resolution, it may be the horizontal or vertical frequencies of your video card being out of range for your monitor. Can you adjust those at the splash screen (I don't remember).

    Hi eonshift,
    I downloaded the same KDE 4 live CD and have what appears to be a similar problem.
    When I boot I'm presented with these options.
    I'm currently running a dual boot with XP and Opensuse 10.3.

    Are you presented with a similar screen?

    If I take the opensuse 11 option the boot process details scroll down the screen as you describe and then it stops looking for a login and password.
    Is that what you mean by blinking led?
