After a normal install the screen is a scrolling mess of colors, nothing can be read. Installing in safe mode VESA, everything is visible.

In safe mode audio output is not found.

according to specs it has a ATI M6-P graphics controller.

I suspect that some setting is wrong, but see no way to get in to change settings.

The Ati driver doesn't work for many modern Ati video chips. Disabling it by installing in VESA mode is the only thing you can do, unless you're capable of porting a newer version of the driver.

Sound is not affected if you choose only the safe mode for disabling the video driver. However, have you followed the instructions in the Welcome document for enabling sound?
