okay, let's see. Can you at all log in booting from a live pendrive? If you have an Ubuntu-based PC on the side, you can easily make a bootable pendrive. otherwise, use this "recipe":
- download a live distro, Xubuntu, Fedora, anything
- enter the console
- navigate to the download location
- enter this
sudo dd if=file.you.just.downloaded.iso of=/dev/sdb
- get coffee
is the stick (on my system), to find out where your
stick resides (after plugging it in, of course) issue this
to see where's what. Make sure you output to the stick and not the harddrive, dd is ruthless and destroys the data on the target drive
Once in there, let's look at the log files. One sure way to get the graphics going is to switch to VESA, for that you'll need to either make a file (X is clever enough not to need one anymore, but if it's there, it will use it) as /etc/X11/xorg.conf
I could suggest you paste this in there:
Driver "vesa" #Choose the driver used for this monitor
Identifier "Screen0" #Collapse Monitor and Device section to Screen section
DefaultDepth 16 #Choose the depth (16||24)
Modes "1024x768_75.00" #Choose the resolution
and save it, reboot and there should be some light.
Let's go from there...
By the way, how well are you into Linux? How experienced are you? I assumed some experience, but, feel free to ask away...
