you should install framebuffer. actually, mandrake installs that. go to the boot preferences in drakconf and see if you can make it work by messing with that stuff. if it doesn't work edit /boot/lilo.conf or wherever that is and change the vga line to somthing different. or if you use grub (which you should) then change the vga option on the kernel line to your vga mode. if you have a 1024x768 screen, change the vga to 791. if all that doesn't work, buy a new computer.
