The real vvbudh here, I believe I am using an X11 file, I see it in my home folder. I will try to change the screen resolution to 1024x768, I do believe that that one worked before. However I am a little hesitant to do more major deleting of files without the help of my friend Tom, because Tom is the one who got me into and knows a lot more about Linux.
I tried to switch it to 1024x768 but to no avail, the screen went black and the on blue light on the power button went to the off orange light. It remained black for a few sec (about 10[I have waited for 2 mins before so I didn't expect this was any different]) and so I manually rebooted. Entered my account and still the same resolution.
I'm not sure about how I can help make this problem more understandable. Is there anything I can do and post here to help you? If so please give some step by step instructions if you wouldn't mind. I still don't quite understand all of what my friend Tom really does to my computer.
Also, how would I go about checking the refresh rates?
