  • Linux Lite: 4.2 64bit
I've begun experimenting with Linux using an old Win 7 laptop. (1.6Ghz Intel Core i7; 4 MB ddr 3 RAM; 250 GB hard drive) I read about Linux Lite, and it sounded like the ideal blend of speed with a variety of features. I burned the downloaded iso to an 8 GB USB drive using Etcher, and booted the USB. Attempting to Start Linux Lite just produced a black screen, even after several re-tries, and I finally resorted to booting into Safe Mode. This quickly started the process, and the desktop is visible with a responsive menu and internet connection established. But, I have no idea why it was necessary to boot into the Safe Mode or how to find out, and I'm concerned that installing Linux Lite without knowing is unwise. How can I determine if it is safe to do so?

I'm am the newest of newbies with Linux (and a very old dog trying to learn this new trick). Than you for any help you can provide!
