I am talking a friend through the process of installing linux on his laptop. He chose mint as he liked the look of the GUI. However when he ran the live DVD he saw this:
I recognise that this is a screen default incompatibility but without hands on access I am not sure what to suggest to him. If I was physically present I would be happy to poke about at stuff, or even to customise the live DVD any way that you might care to suggest. However, I will need to talk my friend through whatever fix we come up with which means I need to be able to explain it over the phone and he (not an expert) needs to be able to then do it.
What is the least complex solution to this problem?
Are there bios settings or some other minor edits that can be carried out to the ISO image?
