Default Linux problem-Graphics Card?

Hello everyone, I installed Linux in the same computer where I use windows in order to be able to run larger simulations. Apparently, there is a problem with the graphics card or something like that as the screen went blank after installation. Has anyone experienced this before? How can I deal with this? Thanks!!

Hi,

I have had a similar problem. In my case the problem was that the graphics card was not configured correctly in Linux. You could verify that the problem is due to the graphics card by pressing <Ctrl><Alt><F1> to see if you can get a non-graphical login prompt.

How to change the settings depends on the Linux distribution you are using. On SuSE for instance you can use 'sax2'.

Ooops. The keys to be pressed are Ctrl, Alt, F1 (i.e you should be pressing 3 keys at the same time). This sequence disappeared in my prevoios posting.
