[xubuntu-users] CD Booting turns off monitor

I've got a Viewsonic widescreen LCD running on a desktop PC (Asus-Nvidia  
chipset mainboard, MSI-Nvidia chipset video).

I boot the xubuntu CD and see the logo, then briefly a flashing white dash  
in upper left of black screen, then my monitor turns off ("no signal"  
message). The CD continues to be accessed for a while then it just stops.  
I have no screen. I can drop to commandline (monitor then turns on) with  

Can anyone tell me how to fix this so that I can actually boot into  
graphical xubuntu? BTW, I did the CD integrity check (twice) and it found  
no errors. I also tried inserting "screen=1440x900" (this is my monitor's  
optimal resuolution) just before the word "splash" in the boot  
commandline, but with the same result.

Thanks for any help!
