Reading this thread, you don't seem to have tried to append "nomodeset" (without the quotes, of course) to the command line at boot time.

This is a basic fix in case of failing handover to the framebuffer driver during boot sequence, so please try that.

If that works just that line in your /etc/lilo.conf:
append = "nomodeset"

I prostrate before you. My salutations to you. Problem solved, following your suggestion!

Shall I leave at "nomodeset" or, should I enter the Dell monitor's resolution?
Thanks!!

You have saved me from re-installation
