No distros work properly on Toshiba Satellite 4080XCDT
I don't know if I'm setting up the distros wrong or what, but I have tried to install Ubuntu, FC4 and Slackware (at different times) on my Toshiba Satellite 4080XCDT laptop. It will boot up, get past the boot loader, the cursor will show up (an "X" type shape") the will goes to a random color (black, white, red/yellow, or green) and freezes. I will again repeat, this is with 3 different distros. I have not read the "manual" on installing them, but I have installed Ubuntu and FC4 on a desktop (didn't try Slackware on the desktop.) However, if I have a mostly dead battery, force it into hibernation, then use AC power to turn it on, it will work until I restart or use "Lock Screen."Are there any suggestions (besides the manual, which I will do) or do I need to go back to Windows?
