Problems on a HP kayak XU


Hi,

I have run both knoppix and ubuntu live cds on my HP kayak XU and have come up with the same problem each time. Once it has started up the screen resolution and colours become terrible. I'm not sure if this is because my video card is not compatible (elsa gloria synergy) or it is because of the same problem i had when i installed windows which was a irq conflict between the graphics card and my processor (p2 xeon 400mhz).

have you tried passing any boot parameters? when you are at the boot screen there should be options for parameters to pass. I would try some of the different video ones
