Unhappy Linux RHEL 5 Boot goes to black screen and GUI never comes up - Dell XPS M1530

Hi

I've installed RHEL 5 on Dell XPS M1530 Machine which has NVIDIA NB8M-GS 128MB Graphics card on it. Installation goes successfully & When i reboot the machine,

It shows Starting Udev and there black screen appears and never shows the Linux GUI Mode .. Neither KDE nor GNome environments.

I've read in forums that it is the problem with nVIDIA Graphics drivers or something i dont know.

I've tried installing RHEL Serveral times, Still the same thing happens.

Can somebody help me with this issue please ?

Appreciate your help.

Regards,

I have similar issues , this is related to video driver ... you can install rhel and then get the GUI back using steps listed here :

Is there any way you could get Anaconda's X log from the failed config? X.org 7.1 (which is what RHEL5 uses) is notorious for reading the EDID from the monitor, writing it to your log file, and then totally ignoring it and setting a completely invalid mode that your monitor can't handle.
