    It does take a while to load - remeber it is reading off the CD, decompressing the software etc etc...

    Re: computer screen goes black after windows logo

    You could try

    knoppix vsysnc=60 hsysnc=60

    What graphics card is it?

    Other option is to boot to command line, but you need some familiarity with linux CLI to find your way around - which I suspect you don't have

    One other thing - in addition to the screen settings - add

    xserver=XFree86

    to the command line (different X server)

    so on the command line add

    "knoppix vsysnc=60 hsysnc=60 xserver=XFree86"

    or just

    "knoppix vsysnc=60 hsysnc=60"

    and if that dont work

    "xserver=XFree86"

    Re: computer screen goes black after windows logo

    OK - if you have booted into the linux graphical screen - you should see icons for the hard drive (if it is multi-partitioned, one for each partition)

    You options now are:

    Get a USB drive - plug that in to the computer and copy the data files off the hard drive onto the USB drive

    See what AV is available on the knoppix disk and run that against the hard drive

    If there isn'tt a virus scanner on the CD, then vcopy the data files off the hard drive, then you can download a virus checker (F-prot is pretty good for Linux) and run that against the hard drive - but really the point of this is to rescue your data. Once that is safe you can consider your other options in slower time.#

    Obviouysly, if the important stuff is less than a couple of GB, you could put it on a USB memory stick. If the computer has a CD writer on it, you could burn the stuff to the CD ROM - but a USB memory stick or USB hard drive is probably the quickest and safest option.

    Re: computer screen goes black after windows logo

    If the files you are copying are infected, then yes they can - but those are most likely to be word macro viruses, so if you have macros turned off when you open the documents, then they won't do any harm, and they are fairly rare these days.

    Unless you are copying .exe or .dll files, the risk is pretty small - and you can virus check the USB stick on a windows machine anyway.

    My guess would be that your data files are word/excel/pp files, together with jpg and mp3 files - which are safe, as are .txt files.
