Monitor Probs In Rh 9 On Laptop

I am having issues when I want to use my laptop. First of all, when I tried to install in the GUI menu, the screen shut off. so I installed under text based mode. I did it all. then when I go to reboot. it starts up all the modules and stuff, and then the screen goes black. Well I herd I can do something to the XF86config file or somthing along thoes lines. Can any body help me. Here is the video drivers that I have, this is what came up on default on the screen:
Trident Cyberblade
and then the video RAM: 8192

THx for the help!

You probably have very little video ram.

I had a very old machine and when i tried to install RH9 on it, it said that I didnt have enough video ram so I had to install in text mode. And XServer didnt work obviously.

You better get a good video card with more ram\
