Troubleshooting your install
If you watched the video, you saw that I ran into problems with the GUI.
Whenever I launched the Install in safe drivers, it wasn’t using GPU power at the point and is the reason it worked.
Suffice to say whenever the full installation of Zorin was completed, it naturally wanted to use the drivers it had installed.
Turns out that the graphics card was completely toasted. The smell of those burning electronic components was strong and I almost thought something was on fire.
Anyways, nothing else was wrong with the PC, and nothing was wrong with Zorin. I tested another video card and another Live disc to make sure!
