Re: screen goes dark...

well, i noticed that when i install more packages other than just the base, it disables my keyboard and monitor.

i was able to install base then reboot, but didnt know what to do when the console came. ran pacman --sync --refresh and couldn't connect. and i wanted to get to kde. so im doing all again with no luck.
