It looks like yes. finds out how along with videos on how to.

But if you are seeing a black screen your PC may be dead or incompatible. Try other distros. Don't get hung up with a specific distro. Just a month or so ago I had a new Intel NUC and I went through a dozen distros before I settled on one. About half showed issues with my Intel NUC. Lesson? Try other distros.

The simple answer is

Try other distros and if the PC has some defect, then have it repaired.

what do you mean by Distros

Other Linux releases.

My message is simple. Don't get hungup by sticking with Kali 2.0. You can see it's not a new issue so my fix was to run some other Linux.

If you have an dvd drive on that computer...

I would suggest making a live Kali instead. I think putting it on a flashdrive is a little bit more involve. Don't ask me how, because I have not been successful of creating one just yet. I am using LinuxLive USB Creator.

I have to disagree

Ok, I was successful today with Kali...

using live dvd or .iso on the harddrive. Now I got go back and check why the previous 2 distros (Fedora and Kaos) didn't work.

For live Linux, this usb method seem pretty fast compare to a live dvd.

I'm looking @

Linux Live USB Creator and I don't see KaOS listed as being supported.
Maybe that's why it isn't working . Fedora should work fine though.

Even though some may not be on the compatibility list,

some do work. I just got Fedora 32 on the USB but my favorite Suse/PClinuxOS did not. Are you using LiLiusb creator or something else. I know you using LinuxMint on a USB. Something I have just notice, Fedora and Kali have almost the identical graphic interface/desktop.
