no screens found error - xserver disabled
I'm new to lynux - using ubuntu dapper for few weeks now. I restarted my computer yesterday after installing updates: it stopped restart in the middle, saying:
failed to start the X server. it is likely that it is not set up correctly.
the X server output diagnose is:
Fatal server error:
no screens found
I tried the : sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
(with the correct spelling of course) but it did not work, still get the no screens found error.
I 'm new to this, so first i would appreciate any advice on what to do before I "give up" and reinstall,
but also directions on how to do what ever you advice me.
