Re: blank screen

I think your system redirect the console output to the RS232 instead of the graphic console. As far as I remember, you need to do something like : Shut down the system (maybe forced by power off/on, or connect RS232 terminal to serial port). Than press shift and reset keys together, then do an attended mode reboot by holding down the space bar. At the ? prompt enter "C" and press return. A menu of interfaces will appear. Select the right interface save and reboot.
Hope this helps,
