Monitor Blank
 
I have been using Damn Small Linux via Live CD,Pen Drives etc---no problems. I use an nvidia SA 6600 graphics board.Now then, I just purchased a 19" Samsung LCD Monitor and decided to go digital and use the DVI connector. Great picture in Windows,however DSL linux no longer works. I get the opening DSL screen OK but when I press Enter key to boot Linux the screen goes blank and stays blank. Can anyone help Please, Thanks

Assuming your graphics is a second port on the same card, you'll need to configure TwinView for that. Your other option is to specify the 'ConnectedMonitor' (or something close to that) in your XF86Config/Xorg.conf file.
