First the stats

Mandrake 8.2
athlon 2100 xp on abit mobo
abit geforce 4 4200 video
sb live 5.1 sound

When I try to run hardrake or any other app that configures or examines the hardware the screen blacks out leaving only a cursor where I can type but it does not respond to commands. I personally think it's a issue with the video card. Does anyone have any ideas/solutions?

Hello,

Perhaps you are missing some updates - http://www.mandrakelinux.com/en/security/m...es.php3?dis=8.2

Is this just for video hardware or is it for everything, like if you try and configure an ethernet card?

It basically looks like it crashes whenever an app tries to probe any hardware to see what it is.

What log files might be a good place to start looking? Maybe something in there could help me.
