Please do not use words like "Urgent", please DON'T SHOUT and please don't expect private replies to a a thread on a public forum.

As for your problem, there surely isn't literally NO display... what is on the screen, a console log prompt? What actually happens during the boot process? What does your /var/log/Xorg.0.log file say about the attempt to start? Please try to provide more useful information if it is so urgent.

Ok,,I'm explaining my problem step by step as follows :

1.I booted from a DVD of RHEL 5 to install RHEL.

2.At the very 1st screen of the installation a red window comes.I press enter to start GUI installation.

3.By keeping all option default I finish my installation successfully in a GUI mode.Then my PC asked me to reboot & eject the CD.

4. I eject my CD and click the Reboot button.

5. Finally when my PC rebooted then My monitor Philips 19 " LCD says to me that it has no video input.So I see a black screen. But My CPU is working ! After waiting 30 minutes I don't get any result/output screen on my monitor. Thats the problem !

Plz help me.

But he also asked you about the log file.......


Did you install a video card driver?

Did you do anything to set up an X configuration file---eg: run "X -configure" ?

Look in /etc/X11 and see if you have the file "xorg.conf" If so, please post the results here.


Finally, I would strongly recommend removing your e-mail address from the first post---you are just inviting a SPAM attack.

Dear 2 moderators, I'm a newbie in Redhat linux.I'm not understanding your suggestions.Anyway,I don't need to run RHEL 5 on my PC.Because Currently, I'm using Mandriva Linux One (Spring 2009).I'm happy with it.

Can you please suggest me from which site i'll be able to get the download links for the "Mandriva Linux Powerpack" (Full) ?

so from the point your bios screen dissapears you see absolutely nothing whatsoever?? That's really not going to happen, as the initial screens for the boot loader will be standard text or vesa resolutions, that any system from the past 15 years would be able to display just fine.

You can also find some old tube monitor and plug that one to your PC and then debug by switching between new and old monitor.

Also, please describe ANY output visible on your LCD monitor after the BIOS screen as requested. There could be problem with refreshing frequency LCD monitor supports but, as said above, there should be at least some output. We can take it from there and find what is wrong.

First, you need to state specifically which suggestions you don't understand.

To get Mandriva, did you try their web site?

[QUOTE=pixellany;3727161]First, you need to state specifically which suggestions you don't understand.

I'm not understanding these issues what you guys said given below :

Code:
Did you install a video card driver?

Did you do anything to set up an X configuration file---eg: run "X -configure" ?

Look in /etc/X11 and see if you have the file "xorg.conf" If so, please post the results here.
For 1st ques: I've used Ubuntu & Mandriva.They don't need any driver.Then why Red hat needs?

For 2nd & 3rd ques : From where i can find those logs ? Because i don't see anything after installing.

After successful installing the shit (Red hat) & rebooting my monitor (Philips 19" widescreen LCD) shows nothing.Just black screen (Not even a single dot).But my cpu is running.

Now anyone can solve this ?

"The SHIT" as you referred to RHEL, is US based distribution, and in order to avoid any law suits crazy Americans file for everything just to live without working, they do not ship or provide any proprietary drivers, only open source ones.

There are several third party repositories containing all drivers, codecs (mp3 and alike) etc you need, but you have to add them to your yum config or by installing repository release rpm's.

As for your problem, do you by any chance use KVM swich between the monitor and Server? If so, try pluging monitor cable directly.

If not, try unplugging your Server fro few minutes and try again.

If you are unable to see even the BIOS screen (before linux even starts), then "The SHIT" is that Server PC (hardware) you bought, or some other peace of hardware you bought, because there is no way that any OS/software can cause.

And if you do not like talking to us in normal way, without foul mouthing the thing we use and love, then instead of insulting us just run along and try to find someone crazy enough to help you after you insult him.

johnny_eee - I get that you are frustrated. However, you have been given several sensible and useful pieces of advice in this thread and you don't seem to have responded to the last few. Go try what has been offered to you and come back if you still cannot resolve the issues.

Editing out your comments does not make any believe that the comments don't exist, by the way.
