Linux CentOS 5 black screen when make reboot

I'm writing from the IBM Thinkpad A30 with Linux CentOS!!!!!!!!
I write here for understand my first problem.....
After installed CentOS I've see a message when the sistem start....and this message said: ACPI: Could not use ECDT. (think is a BIOS error....but this is what I've read with a Google search.....).
After the first start I've make the update (suggested by the OS) and, after make the reboot....same problem.
I see a black screen and the power light of the HD seems run....but don'a appear any sort of screen immages/text.
Tnx so much for the help!!!!!!!!
Best Regards.
