Question Xorg.conf file error when trying to load fedora or reinstall fedora


Hey everyone,

So i was having a lot of problems with my boot grub see http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...fedora-669797/ but I finally got that to be fixed.

I am now having a problem that I think my xorg.conf file has been deleted or is not being found. When I choose fedora in the grub i get blue and green and lots of blocks and lines all over the screen which obviously isn't to cool. And so I tried to reinstall fedora and when I get to the graphical part of the installation the screen begins to put the nonsense on the screen as well. Do I have a bad install CD or what is happening that is causing this problem.

Thanks for all your help in advance,
Shade

There should be an option at the initial stage of installing from CD/DVD to check the integrity of the disk. Get it to do that first.
