    I would just tap the return key first.

    No response then I type ctrl+c next

    Still no response I would press ctrl+alt+backspace

    At this point if I get the terminal mode then I know the xorg needs to be re-configured for the video. If still no response, say for half an hour, I will conclude my installation has gone south and start a re-install.

    If that happens same again then I will do what I should have done in the first place--->check the MD5 sum of the iso image.
