screen dies after system install

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
I just finished a clean install of os X (and OS9.2 )on a DVD imac (CRT type). All went well till restarted after installing os9. The screen was all odd colours then finally after a couple more restarts no image at all.

I know system is working (in osX) since I can reboot from the keyboard.

I tried resetting PRAM and the install was on reformated drive.

Is this an unholy coincidence or could the install have caused this?

and is there any thing else I can try?

    I need more information. Does the computer boot into OS X?

    yes is booting into X. the screen has come to life a bit , but is horribly distorted and blurred. Must be video card related.

    Aaprt from that seems to work

    rebooted into os 9 and off CD and same thing
