mandrake 10.1 won't boot into kde or any other graphical desktop

when i was installing it told me 'device was missing' when i tried to test my graphical settings. when i try to boot into linux it still tells me 'device is missing'. i've tried entering 'startx' in the command line. it tells me a 'device is missing'.
