I'm trying to install Mint on a desktop and I'm having some issues getting it to cooperate. When I run from the Live DVD and allow it to start automatically, I get this on the screen:
If I select the safe startup, it seems to load the CLI normally. However, at a certain point my monitor displays "OUT OF BOUNDS." Attempting to change resolution/refresh rate with [Ctrl Alt +/-] results in the message "DVI NO SIGNAL" blinking in with a black screen.
I assume this is a graphics card issue-- the computer in question has no inbuilt VGA onboard, so I'm using a spare. Is there any way I can fix this without scrapping the card?
Edits in bold.
Update 1. I'll try to keep this updated for future needs-- I know I can't stand when a problem on an internet forum is solved without future input.
I am still trying to get to the command prompt -- closest I got was by Escaping out of the safe mode install, which gave me four colored dots, and eventually "Linux Mint 17.1" over them, however, this just kicked me back to the monitor OUT OF RANGE error.
