I decided recently I wanted to give Linux a go so I first download a Ubuntu boot CD.
The boot menu came up fine, and then a glowing Ubuntu logo was in the middle of the screen for a while. Then the screen was flickering orange and black. I guess this is where the GUI should've came up. Pushing Ctrl+Alt+F1 brought me to the command prompt OK.
I thought this may have something to do with Ubuntu, so I downloaded Linux Mint. The same sort of thing happened. It booted fine, displayed it's logo for a while and then flickered, only green and black this time.
Does this sound like a video card problem?
How can I resolve this?
I just tested the Linux Mint CD on another computer (a Toshiba laptop), and it worked perfectly.
