you have to configure the parameters for your monitor,
(17 inch lcd is same kind of special)
this is a part of the configuration of the X Window System, in
the linux world  you can get special information at www.
Try the settings of a very normal VGA or SVGA monitor,
(resolution 800x600, refreshing frequencies horiz, vert. not too fast... 60
Hertz ..., number of colours
only 256 ....and so on)....
once you are able to install the system and the computer boots again,
log in as root
type XF86Setup
...this is the default configuration program for configuring your X Window
System on your linux computer..
or any other program that is used in the Yellox Dog Linux Distribution
(Start Here.....System Settings Folder )
