SUSE 10.1-strange post-install behavior-HP 4150 laptop
[I accidently originally posted this to Linux Desktop; I'm new to this forum and don't know how to un-do that...I just know that that was the wrong place for it. My apologies.]
I did a SUSE 10.1 install on my HP Omnibook 4150 laptop from CDs. I think it really installed OK, but here's what I'm experiencing: 1) sometimes it'll go through a boot-up and end up at a gray, "pixely" screen. If I tap the laptop's on/off button once, I'll see the regular SUSE 10.1 desktop (blue background, My Computer and other icons) and then the computer will shut down; or 2), the boot-up process will get me to the black DOS-like screen, and finally land me at a prompt for login and password; but even though Ill enter all the correct info (the info I set up for this during installation), the system always returns the message that I've entered the wrong info. Any tips or ideas?
