I am fairly experienced in Linux but I have an issues that I don't even know how to google.(I have spent quite a lot of time trying too)
I have different distros on a couple of my machines and I have had a distro on my main desktop before. Now however, when I try to install one on my desktop, it gives me a weird screen issue. The image is the same with every distro except the two colors are similar to the main colors of that distro's splash screen. I think it is related to the kernel, but I can't be for sure.
I have attempted with many different distros and kernels but with all besides Ubuntu, Extix, and Gentoo, I get the same weird screen.
I do plan to install Gentoo soon, but since I was hoping to do the LFS project, I would like to uncover why this is happening so it doesn't when I get to that point in my LFS.
My specs are as follows:
Nvidia 750a chipset
240 GS W/512 GDDR5
AMD Phenom X4 9850
4 GB DDR2 800
4 Hard Drives of various makes
2 DVD/CD-RW drives
VIA VT6421 Raid Controller
I also don't think it's related to the extra drives or the raid controller since it happens without them as well.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
