Instead of typing "knoppix" at the boot screen, try the following and see if one works:

Quote:
fb1280x1024
Quote:
knoppix xmodule=vesa
Quote:
knoppix xmodule=fbdev
Alternatively, try looking here and see if any of that helps (mostly it's the same as I said): http://www.knoppix.net/wiki/Hardware...sn.27t_work.21
