    Re: computer screen goes black after windows logo

    If it booted straight to the black screen then either a) your machine isn't booting from CD or b) you didn't burn that ISO as an image and you just copied the file to CD.

    Anyways - it could still be a fair while longer - I've seen it take more than 2 hours but given that it's your best chance of getting the machine back in working condition without a reinstall of sorts then you'll just have to be patient I'm afraid. I'm just hoping you're not one of these people the turns off System Restore as a waste of space (Given how cheap hard drives are these days I really cant understand the logic in that argument)

    Re: computer screen goes black after windows logo

    The file that your machine is struggling to load is the display driver. Until that initialises there's very little going to happen.

    But as peterb said - what exactly happens during the boot process from the CD?

    Re: computer screen goes black after windows logo

    Are you sure it doesn't make any attempt, or give you any option whatsoever to boot Knoppix?

    Did you try pressing enter or something when that comes up (normally I would expect a "press any key to boot cd" type message is all)

    Re: computer screen goes black after windows logo

    Does the board have on-board graphics? Last time I had this particular problem was when I forgot to disable on-board graphics in the BIOS. Therefore windows loads, gets confused as to what's the primary graphics display & goes for the default.

    Just a thought.

    Re: computer screen goes black after windows logo

    Ypu shpoul;dn't see any windows logo if you are booting from the CD...

    Either you didn't burn the CD correctly
    or the Bios is set incorrectly.

    put the CD in the drive, then power up the machine - it should boot straight off the cd - no windows logo - nothing - just a lot of text as it boots into Knoppix.

    Ok, that's where you went wrong - you need to burn it as an image, not just dump the iso on the disc.
