I noticed the scrambling problem on one of my computers that has an Intel 815 card when using the vesa driver. If you are seeing diagonal lines in the scramble. I could not find info on your computer board, so I do not know which video chipset it has.

Since you installed with all of the options that you supplied, the X display probably has the vesa driver.

First item is to check your grub entries and see if you can remove the options from the kernel boot line. If you boot and it still locks up, you might try to run 'system-config-display --reconfig' in order to setup a proper driver for your Intel motherboard video.

This won't fix your problems, I hope it leads you in what to look for.

An idea is not responsible for the people who believe in it.
