I have an old PC which I am trying to repurpose - Asus Pundit P4-P5N9300
I've tried installing Mint (all versions) as well as Zorin Lite. The installation is fine, but the moment I enter the username & password (at login screen), the computer boots into the desktop then freezes. The mouse pointer is responsive (moves around) but nothing is clickable and the keyboard presses are unresponsive.
I even tried installing Google Chrome Flex OS - that boots into the desktop and is responsive, but repeatedly crashes within minutes after the screen distorts.
Given the same thing happens on various versions of Mint and Zorin, I presume it is a driver issue. From the research I have done, it could possibly be the integrated graphics driver causing the issue. Does that sound right?
Can anyone help me troubleshoot. Would be great to bring this thing back to life.
Thanks in advance for your help.
P.s I am relatively new to Linux (being a Windows user) so please bear that in mind when giving instructions.
