Ok, have you set your graphics card and monitor correctly? Could you tell us what graphics adapter/chip, monitor and mouse you have? Then we might have an easier time helping you get the right settings.

That means that you have chosen the wrong graphics adapter in XFdrake, so you need to determin what you do have. A help there is the output from
lspci -v
or
lspcidrake

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
