Tried to check other questions first, but didnt find any that were the same so here goes.....
Have an older pc with MSI motherboard: ms-7039 V 1.3. Other id's are N1996 and K9N6PGM2-V man. date 6/11/2008. Has bios v 9.1 simbios v 2.5 This is a 32bit.
Have formatted satas (plural because tried different drives to be sure not bad) in ntfs, partitioned according to instructions.
Have created 2 bootable usb's both 32bit, of ubuntu and mint. These both are fine as checked them on other machines so thats not the problem.
Can load win7 just fine, when go through install of these distros all goes well until says to reboot. Once reboot, loads up and either get 1. a fuzzy screen just with color 2. the screen with only icons on top right (ubuntu) sometimes mouse works sometimes not or 3. all icons top right and on left, but either mouse not work, moves in jerks and in both of these cases cannot click on icons.
Any ideas? Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks.
