I thought I might give linux a go because i was gettin fed up with XP, halfway through the instillation I realised that installing it might be a bit above my level of knowledge. No worries i thought as i stuck in my Recovery CD that was supplied with my laptop (i have used it a number of times) everything was going according to plan, it deleted the partitions and formatted the HD. It told me to take out the cd and restart, which i did.
Problem: I push the power button, the toshiba screen pops up and gives a little beep (this is normal) then a grey screen comes up covered in what appears to be 7's. Thats all that happens. I have tried using the recovery cd again but i get the same problem. Does anyone have any bright ideas?
(if you want I can allways attach a pic of the troublesome screen if thats any help)
