hey people,

i just put natty x86 on this nx8220 from a friend. wiped the hd completely and made a 10gb / partiton 48gb for /home and 2gb for swap.
let the installer download updates during the install. it all went very smooth, but now it won't show the login screen, there's just the mouse and a black screen.
the live cd works though.
any ideas on how to solve this? haven't found the laptop in the compatible thread nor in the incompatible one.
