    black screen

    Hi guys nice to meet you I am new to the forum .. and linux
    I'm in the clear difficulties with the installation of Knoppix 6.4.3 (I really like this version).
    I recently tried several times the knoppix live-cd and I found myself very well so I decided to install it on HD. At first the problem was that the grub menu did not appear in the entry for knoppix but I resolved with the command : update-grub ... but now when the choose to start the distribution I see the two penguins at the top left , a few lines of code and then black screen, as if someone does not extinguish the graphics card and the just have to shut down my laptop by power button ... But the live cd works perfectly you could help me? Yours sincerely
    thank you all Gemy
    I forgot ... I have a Sony Vaio VGN-CS11S with NVIDIA GeForce 9300M GS
    ... sorry for my bad English ...
    bye

    Dear Gemy:

    I'm sorry no one has replied yet. Have you had any luck since this was posted?

    My best recommendation at this point is to look at the Cheatcodes file on your Knoppix disk with whatever OS you have installed, assuming it is working (sometimes it's not, and that's why Knoppix is being tried.) You can also try the hints available by hitting F2 at the time the boot prompt appears.

    Cheers!
    Krishna
