Had installed mint14/64-bit (lxf167) and ubuntu 13.04(lxf172) on my new pc (Intel i5 cpu) and tried to make room on harddisk to install debian7(lxf173) by partitioning. I tried to follow the instructions, but suddenly, the screen went black. How can I access the pc now, and how do I clean the disk. In future I will only run the Operating System from the dvd!
Correction:the screen is not totally black, it is blinking a hyphen on the black screen as if waiting for me to type something. But no matter what I type, nothing appears on the screen. The dvd from Linux Format (LXF173) is in the drive, and constantly spinning. I was going through the instructions in the debian 7 operating system (os) to try and partition the harddisk for debian 7 os and then on the next question after entering my code word, the screen went almost black, I must have done something wrong. The screen went black, except for the hyphen blinking - for me to write something, but what? Could I not just clean the harddisk?But how? This black screen, with this blinking hyphen keeps appearing. I can not boot from the dvd (lxf173).
It is now 20.15, wednesday, Denmark time, I have solved the problem and i am online....
