I have installed LMCE from the DVD and have gone through the AV/Wizard successfully. My problems begin with launch manager. It starts off and begins to load "rendering screens" but then hangs. It hangs at different points after a restart and at one point I got to the stage of "Connecting to 127.0.0.1" Dont know what that means but it hung again and I had to try another reboot.
I have tried changing graphics cards and I get the same issues using both a XFX Geforce 8800GTS and an ATI Radeon 2400 card.
Does anyone know what could be causing this? One more thing to mention is the mouse busy symbol is active when the launch manager starts (you see the dots going around in a circle) but it stops shortly afterwards (hangs) or else it moves very very slowly.
I need some ideas on what could be causing this - maybe faulty hard drive?? Thanks for any response..
The system is as follows -
IDE CD/DVD ROM
SATA 80GB Hitachi 3.0 Gb/s
XFX Geforce 8800GTS 640 DDR3 or ATI Radeon HD 2400 256MB
2x1GB 240 pin DIMM XMS
Intel® Core™2 Quad processor
32" Samsung LCD TV connected via VGA
