Issue booting PCLOS 2010.11 Live CD on a Dell Latitude E6510


Greetings, was wondering if anyone else has had this issue albeit on this type of laptop or any other.

When I boot from the CD, it starts to boot and then continously repeats:

Code:
Initializing gfx code...
boot:
gfxboot:
It stops on boot for about 10 seconds each time then gfxboot for not even a second before the cycle continues. I have tried more than one CD, so I don't think that is the issue. It even did the exact same thing when I tried it on PCLOS 2010.10. Both versions I tried were KDE.
This is not real big problem, just trying to figure out how to get past this.
If it matters, the laptop in question is running Win 7 64 Bit (Hey, it's my work computer so I don't have a choice. LOL)

All the best,

Ian

Found this on PCLinuxos site.

This has something to do with Nvidia grahpics card, as far as I know.
