I've booted pcLinuxOS 2009 from the CD, it seems to load fine, but then my Acer monitor blanks (like it's not connected :) ) and says Input not supported... Also happens when I boot from SimplyMEPIS CD. Anyway to fix this? TIA

Can you use F3 or F4 at the boot menu to change screen resolution?

What about turning on the display before you turn on the computer?


What about getting a new monitor?

boot with normal os then go and change monitor res to a lower setting (at least below 728 x 1024)
save and reboot with cd

keep tapping F3 when booting pclinuxos,

use your up and down arrows on the keyboard

choose 800x600 from the options (1024x728 is default)

or press exit and press the down arrow to bootvesa (can't remember exactly) then enter

this should work

Ctrl + Alt + Delete will reboot your pc without pressing the off switch

there is another way to boot pclinuxos but as i use a crt monitor, i can't give instructions (i don't get the error)

hope this helps
