Slackware-13.37 install BSOD on reboot


Using slackware-14.1 but thought to try 13.37.
Install went well as normal, but on reboot it shows "loading linux" then does a few seconds of rapid scrolling and the monitor goes black, with the signal "HDMI No Signal".
I have tried using the install disk for troubleshooting. No joy.

I can install 14.1 and all is well, but not 13.37. I tried more than one downloaded dvd for 13.37.

Any guesses at what might be causing this?

With the information you provided it would be blind guesses, as so many things have changed from 13.37 to 14.1.

So please provide full output of command "lspci -knn" typed in Slackware-14.1 and tell us the brand and model of your computer and of your monitor.

Meanwhile, try to boot Slackware 13.1 appending nomodeset to the command line.

EDIT: above line was wrong, read:

try to boot Slackware 13.37 appending nomodeset to the command line.

bash-4.2#
Computer is made of parts, Gigabyte motherboard, the one that will not boot from a usb stick, even thought BIOS says it can. I never use usb sticks, just dvd.
The monitor is a Asus VE247H.
Where you write "try to boot Slackware 13.1 appending nomodeset", hope you meant 14.1

At the lilo prompt for slackware 13.37 hit the tab key and then
Code:
linux nomodeset
If your lilo menu entry for 13.37 is something other than linux then change accordingly.

I booted slackware-14.1 from install dvd:
Code:
boot: hugesmp.s root=/dev/sda1 rdinit= ro nomodeset
and saw that the rapid scrolling never went to smaller typefont, also aspect ratio is different so that everything looks wider than it used to. Seems to work OK

colorpurple21859, do you mean type that after install when i would normally type reboot? (ctl-alt-del never works)
I can't see anything in 13.37.

No, I really meant 13.37, sorry for the typo.

If that works, as probably the radeon module shipped in Slackware 13.37 causes the issue, type this as root:
Code:
echo "blacklist radeon" > /etc/modprobe.d/radeon.conf
then reboot Slackware 13.37 normally.

Out of curiosity: why do you want to install Slackware 13.37?

I appended nomodeset to the command line (using install dvd as rescue disk (for those as slow as me)) and it worked!
Installed ati driver (12.6) from 13.37 backup disk, rebooted and it still works.

Thanks to Didier Spaier.

I wanted to try 13.37 because weird things are happening with 14.1, the most annoying is that something is showing traffic on eth0. (OK, I'm a control freak)
These are mostly single spikes. Still happening though with 13.37.
xfce folder icons changed too.


This might be because I started the computer last winter when the temperature on the floor was well below freezing. Replaced hard drive and power supply.
