I have just very recently purchased a Toshiba laptop with a wide screen (1200x800). Before I actually purchased the computer, I tried out the VL 5.9 live CD & it worked perfectly. On that base, I purchased the computer & also the VL Deluxe 5.9 2 cd set.
Since I wanted a dual boot machine, I installed winxp & then VL Deluxe. The VL install went fine, except that the gui logon & everything that comes after is screwed up: The logon screen is missing graphics & drop down menus etc although I can log on. After logging on I get to the gui, which is almost totally blank - task bar is empty, desktop has no icons, 'start menu' is blank (although you can see where the words should be)
The graphics card is Mobile Intel 965 express.
I tried all sorts of combinations but only once did I get a seemingly normal logon - with 800x600.
Thanks for any suggestions
