When I run the 9.04 live cd I choose english then choose to install. The progress bar finishes but the monitor screen goes black. My video card is ati radeon 1900 gt and has worked on Hardy Heron my current OS.

I checked the integrity of disk it it reports no errors. I am at a loss of what to do at this point.

I get the same if I try to just run the live CD with out installing.

Hmmm looks as though the driver being offered for your card ain't working as it should. Well you could try the alternative cd which is just a prompt, hoping that your graphics error does not show up after the install, but all in all you can try and see and tell us of the results.

or you can try a safe graphics mode install (press F4).

When I choose safe mode after I choose english it just puts a color bar a bottom of screen and does nothing else. The cd spins for a bit and any of the function choices do not respond.
