my monitor turns off

Hi, I have downloaded the iso file of the 0.5 beta version of DNA Linux, I burned the image file and booted from disk, it started well until the login screen, I loged in with "root" and the password "dnalinux" but when I type "starx" my monitor turns off and after a wild I listen a Sound I guess is the kde start sound, but such my monitor is turned off I really can't tell,

what happend? how can I start the gui?

PD. Excuse my english I'm still learning

He bajado y quemado el archivo de imagen, inicio desde el disco y linux empieza a cargar, todo va bien hasta la pantalla de login, entro con el password suministrado (dnalinux) pero cuando ejecuto startx el monitor se apaga y así se queda, despues de un rato escucho un sonido que supongo que es del inicio del KDE pero realmente no se ya que mi monitor esta apagado

que es lo que pasa? como puedo entrar al entorno grafico?

Is the monitor power light still on? Perhaps your xorg.conf file isn't configured correctly with the horizontal and vertical sync values that your monitor needs. That can cause a monitor to go completely black, appearing as though it turned off. You have to modify the xorg.conf file with the values for your monitor. Search on Google for your monitor and you should find those horizontal and vertical sync values.

Todavia se enciende la luz de energia del monitor? Tal vez su archivo de xorg.conf no tenga las opciones correctas de la sincronizacion que necesita su monitor. Eso puede causar su monitor parecerse apagado cuando en realidad no es asi. Necesite modificar el archivo xorg.conf con los numeros de su monitor. Busque el tipo de su monitor en Google para encontrar esos numeros de sincronizacion horizontal y vertical.

Disculpe mi español...yo tambien estoy aprendiendo
