Ubuntu display issue
Hi all, it's been a long time since I posted here.
I have just been given an old PC and figured that I'd stick Linux on it and use it for my office type stuff, thereby freeing my more powerful machines for the graphics apps that they were built for.
I have tried installing both Ubuntu and Mint distros and have come up with a display problem that confuses me.
The PC boots up fine, and if I boot it into windows, everything is OK.
When I put the CD in and boot from it, the screen is fine until the disk assumes control of the boot process - and then the screen becomes illegible with a rolling type of "interference pattern," similar to old CRT displays or TV's.
The motherboard says "Foxconn N15235." From the Bios, the graphics adapter is onboard with 64Mb and there is 1Gb of Ram.
I have tried it with two monitors, a "Samsung SyncMaster BX2440" and an "LG Flatron W2486L." Both have resolutions above 1920 x 1080 at 60 Hz refresh
CPU Clock 133, PCIE clock 100,
Installation is impossible, since the screen cannot be read.
