I'm using a Compaq Presario model number SR1110NX. I've tried 3 different distributions: Redhat Fedora Core 5, Ubuntu 5.10, and Debian 3.1 (Sarge).

My problem is that when I boot from the install cds, after I try to enter the main install stage the computer reboots everytime. I get past the loading initz, and it says Kernel loaded ok, then I think it may be trying to initialize the monitor and it fails. I've tried advanced starts by specifying no probes, and vga mode, and every other mode possible that is listed under the f1 help menus. Still the same problem.

I've checked the md5 checksum on each cd, and they are ok so the cds aren't bad (I'm burning at 4x too). I've checked bios settings and made sure that it only boots off cd and checks for nothing else. I have windows xp installed, if that may be a problem?

Any ideas on the cause of the rebooting? If you need any other information at all I'll gladly find out, I'm frustrated and close to giving up.
