Recently I've bought new motherboard - Asus P5QL Pro. One of its features is widely advertised Express Gate, that is pre-installed Linux environment with Internet Browser, Skype and so on. I'm trying to run it, however I can't :) I've installed Express Gate from Asus DVD to Windows (there were some issues, Asus doesn't support Windows 7, compatible mode for Vista SP2 made it), then rebooted my PC. After a few seconds Express Gate screen appeared. I chose Web, then I had to configure the thing, first language (I understand lack of Polish language, but why no Polish keyboard?), then license agreement, and then time zone. Afterwards I clicked Finish, and that's all. I was shown Asus Express Gate powered by Splashtop screen and then the display screen went black. I waited 20 minutes but nothing happened. As I rebooted the PC and chose Web again, I was requested to do configuration again, and again the same result. When I choose e.g. Skype it's the same. What do I do to fix it? Might it be the issue of unsupported operating system? After all, Vista drivers were to be compatible with 7's.

Sounds like a possible graphics issue, as in its trying to boot to a resolution your monitor or card doesn't support. I've had similar issues with some distros and it usually requires adding some command to the kernel options when booting, but you might not have that option.

Check this out and see if its what you need;

Thanks, after all somone's answered :) But I don't think it's unsupported resolution. My card supports up to 2048x1536 (that's what I've run on my monitor, maybe it supports more) and my monitor must support that resolution at least (or bigger one). I have CRT display screen, it's not unadaptable LCD monitor :P And Express Gate supports up to 1440x1050.
PS If it's helpful, my GPU is Geforce 7600GT.
