k well i installed some version of linux i got on a disc sese or something

and before i formatted windows it wouldnt even start windows (this is a junker comp 700 mhz p3 10 gb) i figured it would be fixed

but once linux was installed and i was coming to the main screen it just turned off the little light on my monitor was orange the comp was still working

i looked in bios and set it to normal config

this is a former emachine

anyone know what to do?

It was SuSE Linux.

The video has an issue with the kernel, may want to go pick up a more generic video card for cheap. Since the video works up until X then you may just want to get those OpenGL updates for SuSE.

If you think your 700 p3's a pos u should send it to me, i could always use one ;)
