Did the other livecds (try looking them up) all have a newer or older kernel version in common or something?
dream linux had kernal version and its an old kernel currently every flavor has 2.6.30 or above

Either way, progress.
how can i get a replaced video card for checking? i dont think xfx will provide me one so will try to chk this card on some other pc but that will be tough as most of my friends have laptop will try anyways
