I have just got a second hand Iyonix and have an issue booting into linux

On booting into linux a graphics issue occurs just before login.

It seems that the graphics have no problem until just before
the linux login prompt appears - the last 2 commands are as best that i
can remember are:

starting Gnome display manager: gmd

Starting debian 3 :  tty1

Login:

Between the starting debian and the login prompt the screen goes blank,
and seems to be trying to display things.  After about 30 secs the login
appears again but only for about 5 seconds and then it goes blank and the
cycle of login and then going blank continues.  I can only type onto the
login prompt when it is on the screen, ie key presses made when the screen
is blank don't register? Any ideas.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Peter
