Blank screen on install (does not install) Mandriva

he problem arises straight after i hit install mandriva from the splash screen

dvd spins up and everything starts working the last thing i see is something like "loading all.rdz........................................................" then the screen just goes blank but it would appear the computer is still working

seriously irritating thing. have done a bios update to current version did checksum on the dvd and its correct have installed using the same dvd on 2 other computers ram has no errors

all in all im at a bit of a loss right now and being pretty new to linux i have been captain google but have failed

system (oldish)
mobo: m2n68
cpu: amd 7750
ram: 4g Kingston 800
hdd: 2x 1tb wd green calvier

cheers for any responses
