Controls Center Crash

I'm a newbie using Mandrake 8.1 on a Sony Vaio 900mhz/256mb. I'm learing as I go, but have a problem.

When I go to the Control Center, then Hardware I can look at the Display settings fine. When I click on Hardware, the whole system seems to crash. I have also installed an a Thinkpad 600x and it works fine there.

Any ideas on the Vaio?

Thumbs up

For any future Viao users who may exerience this problem.

When HardDrake loads and the screen goes blank I had to hit the "WINDOWS" key on the keyboard to bring back the screen and the loaded page.

As I am new to this linux thing I am learning as I go. So far it seems to be OK. Getting good information in layman's terms is another thing...
