Thread: Toshiba C650D

    Default Toshiba C650D

    I'm having some trouble getting openSUSE working on my laptop. I can install it fine with no problems, but I'm not even able to login before everything freezes up. The problem doesn't seem to be specific to suse, because I've tried other distros with the same result. If theres anything I left out just let me know.

    Specs

    AMD E-350 cpu
    Ati 6130 gpu
    4GB ram
    500gb hdd

    If the Grub Menu comes up and allows you to select openSUSE 11.4 to load, but then does not work, it could be a video problem. Why not try adding the kernel load option nomodeset? At the grub OS selection menu you can actually type in a text command like nomodeset, before you press the enter key to see if this might help. If it does, we can edit the grub menu and add in this option and you might look into installing the ATI/AMD proprietary video driver as well. There is also a Failsafe startup selection you did not mention if you tried this or not to see if it might work.

    Thank You,

    I tried nomodeset with the same result, froze at login. I'll try the failsafe option and see what happens.
