Puppy Linux boots from the CD I'm using 5.31, it loads everything in to RAM, i select probe and choose the resolution I require, hit enter.

Then it says something like

puppypc313412 login root (automatic login)
puppypc313412:


Edit:

When I choose Vesa, puppy linux loads but I can only have a resolution of 640x480. when i select the xorg wizard it takes me to the shell area or whatever it's called and says

puppypc313412 login root (automatic login)
puppypc313412:

Again.

Very Happy Hello,
Did you try "xwin" or "startx" @ the shell prompt?

Subject description: display..
 

hi and welcome Knack Smile

yep, xorgwizard and/or shell can be fun when trying to get a display. You can..

1) futz around with xorgwizard (manual or some pups do 'auto') - cons: xorgwizard ui

2) edit xorg.conf directly while either in or out of X (out of X is pretty much a cli deal with console text editor such as mp) - How to edit the xorg.conf file has some helpful info. My best results have been to edit and save/bkp while in X, even if an initially 'given' display seems a bit cramped at 800x600 or 640x480 .. and then simply re-X (Restart X Server in the shutdown section of rootmenu) to test.

Not sure this will be your experience, but on my Dell laptop I need to update my bios and then I was able to select a greater Vesa setting that 640 x 480. So you may look into upgrading yours on the hp.
