I made a bootable USB stick containing Linux Mint for the sole purpose of learning Linux. It works great on 3 different computers, however; it will not boot on a cheap HP s3300f computer. Unfortunately, that computer is located in a room where I can spend my time in a peaceful environment ATTEMPTING to learn.
I thought I read somewhere that Linux does not like certain AMD chipsets. Could that be the problem? Are there any versions of Linux that may play nice with that computer?
I am a total NOOB at Linux, so any thoughts would be appreciated.
I should have been more specific. The USB stick does boot Linux, but, it crashes after the splash screen appears. The computer screen gets scrambled and unreadable. Sort of like the video drivers are messed up/incompatible.
