Installation on HP compaq mini 700el (SOLVED)
« on: March 31, 2018, 01:03:12 pm »
Hello to the community!

I stumbled on Peppermint OS just today (despite I've been looking for a lightweighted os for my old laptops for days).

I've installed Peppermint 8 on my HP compaq: booting from USB key and trying it out was fine, smooth as it never has been. I fell in love with it for its design and ease of use. (note that I'm a newbie Linux user... so far have tried xubuntu, lubuntu, lxle, and various others with little satisfaction)

When I finished the install... The os started acting weird. What I mean is that at boot, the default screen doesn't show up, it's a scarred screen with 1/8th of the normal screen on the right and distorted lines/colours allover the rest of the screen. Shutdown had to be done with boot key.
 :(
Any idea of how I could fix this?

I'm installing the Os again, I hope it works...

Thank you for your attention!!
