Unhappy Linux install on Aspire 1353LM freezes...


Hello,

I m a newbie and I wanted to install Linux on my laptop as second operating system. But I can't!!!
Iíve tried to install SUSE 9.1 personal, worked till the end and then when i change my monitor settings it froze never to work again (boot, reinstall or anything).

I ve tried the last Fendora edition, when i chose a screen it froze too... Ok Iíve found out that the screen should be left to vesa 1024*768, but now I canít even try and reinstall... when the installation begins when starting the X server it freezes...

How can I install linux? Any ideas? Is it even possible on this laptop?

woah dude.... sounds like you have either:

a.) bad memory
b.) fried/corrupt memory on video device
c.) corrupt video device from misconfiguration

OR

d.) bad monitor causing the system to freeze when X probes it

hope this helps!!!

But the laptop works perfectly under XP,
No problem what so ever, (watch DVDs, play games, work on photoshop CS) the whole 9 yards. No problem.
Just linux does not like something...

Any suggestions?

It was the ACPI that was freezing the mashine. Linux obviously did not have a good support of the ACPI and was freezing the mashine. Once i did the instalation with out the ACPI activated it worked fine.


Cheers
