quick question about blank screen


I convinced my friend to move over to linux, and he did.
Still one issue, linux boots but the screen remains blank untill KDE login screen. He uses a gforce MX II 64 mb.

Everthing else seems normal (linux red hat 7.2 works fine). Any ideas how to solve this?


P.S. By the way does anyone know some working brother HL1230 drivers

Could it be that grub has anything to do with it? Maybe I should boot in text mode only, but how do I accomplish that?
