I have tried different images, betas RCS full versions, netbook, derivatives and its all the same.

Whats going on? Can it be fixed and is this always going to happen now or is it just a two cycle bug?
thanks for any help.

Total shot in the dark, I don't know what kind of system you have. In my case my laptop has an on-board Nvidia graphics "card" as well as an add-on Nvidia card. I got a blank screen when trying to run the Live CD or doing an install that was only solved by going into BIOS and disabling the on-board graphics.

If your system has such a dual set-up that might help; otherwise I haven't a clue.

Good luck!
