I've got a similar problem for anyone else viewing also. My TA75M, A8-3850, 1TB Barracuda, and 8GB Mushkin PC3 post and show on display to start with but after several seconds display goes black or blank. If it is a Linux Live CD the drives are making noise followed by the desktop music but still no display. On an install if chosen then drives make noise which ends I suppose when I'm suppose to input to continue the install but the screen is blank here also. I tried Alternative install CD Ubuntu 11.04 and 11.10 64 bit and was able to install fine but on system reboot no desktop on display screen or Black or blank yet?!? Tho I've been using and trying to Learn Linux for 10 ears I still consider myself a newbee being basically handicapped by dementia.
I think keeping on trying may be keeping me better.... Thanx if you have any input.... my command line is basically limited to copy and paste on most~all new commands.
Afterthought I did get PinguyOS 64bit to install once and run the GUI but it didn't seem really really stable. Cheers n L8R %:\SW
