I have an old Dell laptop (Inspiron 2600) from 2002. Because it can no longer run XP well, I've been trying to revive it by putting a Linux distro on it. Here are a few of my issues so far: 1) Tried Ubunutu (then Kubuntu) - both installed fine but booted to black screen. 2) I've always had great luck on servers with Suse and Fedora so I decided to give openSuse a try. Same story here - installed correctly but booted to black screen. Booting into option 3 gives me a display but it is not useable. Looks like the resolution is 800x600 (even though it is supposedly in 1024). The video also does not fit the screen. Please note that during the actual installation and when using a LiveCD, the display is fine (Suse even did 1024x768 during the install). Can anyone point me to the things I should try? Anyone have any luck with a particular distro on old Dell laptops?
