You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.

I recently changed my display adapter in an attempt to change my refresh rate, well now x doesnt want to boot, and says i have a bad display adapter selected, which i probably do.


I only know how to change the adapter from Desktop>Display in KDE, but i can only boot up to run level 3 until i get my adapter reset.


Does anyone know where to start? i assume there is a config file somewhere that needs to be changed. But i cant find it.

try this as root


Quote:vi /etc/X11/xorg.conf

that'll allow you to edit the file that controls X directly


if you arfe using fedora try this






thanks anyweb, you bailed me out again :)
