HP Mini Note 2133 Display configuration


Hi Everyone,
I bought a HP 2133 Mini Note, It came with Windows Vista installed, I repartitioned it with GParted, I created Dual boot Windows Vista and FC9, everything was fine, but unfortunately the X Display has been impossible to configure, I can started up in command line, as soon as try to start X the screen became white and it blocked it out completely, so I have to restart it with the switch.
Any idea guys?
By the way it has a adapter type : VIA Chrome9 HC IGP Family WDDM

If your x server goes haywire, try a CTRL + ALT + BACKSPACE
and it should bring you right back to your terminal.

Here is an article on installing Gentoo Linux on an HP MINI-NOTE 2133
and it has a section on the video card.

Goodluck,
Ducky.
