i dont really know what to search for so ill probably get flamed but i was wondering what i would have to do to get my laptop up and running my problem is when i try to RUN the LIVE CD with KDE it goes all the way upto the logon screen and all i can see is a mouse cursor then the computer reboots

does this mean i might have to install in text mode???

i have a compaq 6719NR anyone else have this issue care to point me in the right direction for a fix
