Giga-Byte CA-K8VM800M Motherboard. VIA K8M800 chipset
Clean install with DVD ,machine loads to the point where the install options are then locks up.
After various tests decided the problem was graphical.Installed a graphics card (AGP Radeon chipset)
The operating system then loaded with no problems.Can any one help with (a) the onboard graphics problem or (b) the minimum specification for a graphics card that will work.
I should explain,the card I used for testing was borrowed and expensive so its not really an option
to buy one to this spec
