Thread: Black Screen

  1. #1

    Angry Black Screen

    I cannot get the new 11.2 to install on my machine. THe moment i hit enter at the boot prompt to begin installation, the scree just goes black and unresponsive - caps & scroll lock lights on the keyboard light up and remain lit. no disk activity whatsoever. I tried installing various resolutions, in text mode none gets past the black screen.

    Acer aspire AM1100
    Athlon XP 3600+ (64x2)
    8GB ram

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
    edit: Note - 11.1 never had this problem. Also it is not the same post install ATI driver issue from other threads. This hang up happens immediately after the boot prompt so I cannot even install 11.2

    Ok so no go. The live cd gives the exact same behavior. The live system cant boot, the install option is the same.

    Do you actually have 11.1 still installed? And bootable?

    sure your burn speed is fine?
    this could be signs of bad burns.

    Yes, 11.1 is still installed and bootable. I can re-install it from the 11.1 DVD as well. no problems with it.

    I verified the media for 11.2 and tried various slower burn speeds. I'm really puzzled as to what is happening here.

    Is there any way to load the (live cd) installer from within 11.1?
