Ho Mo, are you using the "install" or the "try" option from the cd boot menu and then the install icon from the desktop? I had video probs with the "try" option but strangely not with the "install" option...

I tried a different monitor and the same problem so it is not the graphics card or the monitor. the graphics card works fine when I install other distros so I am confident in that respect.

I have been looking at posts on the net about 9.10, and it seems there are issues with it detecting monitors. This is such a shame.
