Wont install in graphics mode CentOS5.8 on Dell Optiplex 790


Guys, I have a problem installing CentOS 5.8, I installed it in graphical mode on a PC, but when I install on another it did not work, have tried everything, I recorded the CD again, but nothing! works only in text mode, but I want to install in graphical mode, the PC is a Dell optiplex 790, i5 and 4GB of Ram, I press enter, a screen shows and skip tightening, there appears runnig Anaconda (something), and then the screen goes black and nothing appears! if they can help, thanks! CentOS 5.8!

I would assume that that machine is simply to new for that old OS, Try CentOS 6.3 instead.
