VGA Mode not support


I have installed Mandrake 10.2 ans is having some issues starting the system. After rebooting I am getting a message saying "VGA mode not support". Any idea how to fix this? I am very new to LINUX.

I'm not familiar with this error message but it may help if you can provide some more information on it.

When exactly does it appear? Does it come up on the terminal screen with other messages or is it an error message in a windowed box? Did you test your X configuration (or even set it up) during the installation?

I fixed it

Thanks for replying. I was able to fix the problem. It was a windowed message. I had to change the resolution setting.

Thanks again,
