Hi, I can't get my system to finish booting. It starts up OK, then the splash screen it also fine, I can hit F2 to see it booting, but right when it goes to start X, I get a black screen with "no signal" in my display. I can't get the liveCD to boot. (Also similar problem trying to use other liveCD's such as Ubuntu 9.04.) Any advice? Thanks! rick

Hey Rick, I assume you are running 64 Studio 2.1, right? I recall that I had the same problem when I first installed it and I have a ATI Radeon Mobility x1600. I don't remember exactly what fixed it, but I think I had to edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf because it couldn't auto detect the H/V sync rate. The answer is on this forum somwhere, I will try finding it and post back if I find it or you can search for it as well.
