Tip #3: “I Told the Installer to Test My Graphics, and They Failed”

The installer may have guessed wrong about what hardware you have. Double-check the settings as best you can. If they look right, try choosing a lower resolution for now and testing again, and if that fails try a lower number of colors and test again. You can then try setting things back the way you want them after the machine is fully installed and updated, when it hopefully will have a fix for whatever the problem might be.
