Question Boot CD is not working. I got a blank screen after prompt.


Hi there;
I downloaded 3.0-r4 iso images (7 cd). When I boot my laptop from 1' st CD it was ok; I got the linux command prompt; and then I just hit the "Enter" but only I got is black screen. I think something is wrong with my hardware (probably Graphical card.). Here is my Hardware (For MSI-M510C Laptop):

CPU: 1.5 GHz Centrino
Memory : 512 MB
Graphical Card : ATI RADEON 9700 (Mobility Radeon; I think the core is 9600)
Hard Drive: 60 GB Toshiba
Screen: 15" LCD
Media: DVD/CDRW COMBO

What do you think the main reason for such fault? What can be the solution? Maybe I can try to download the minimal CD and then try to set it up. I know it doesn't help but just want to try. I need real solution suggestions. Thanks for your help...
