I have a DN2800MT mini-ITX motherboard. 4GB DDR3 1333. Has all standard things on it.
When I try to get into #!Crunchbang, Grub comes up, goes into main OS, screen turns off... Nothinmg more
Now, I thought it was the OS. So I try installing Debian, same diff. I even take the SSD from my Windows machine and plugged it in. I see the Windows splash, and then it turns off the monitor. I was expecting like a BSOD. I even try to get into safe mode, same thing happens, screen goes off.
I use onboard video, and don't have any spare PCI-X video cards.
I take this means that my GFX onboard is bad. I think the board is still under warranty.
