i dont see anything the monitor remains on not in
standby mode my monitor is
VIEW SONIC E-651 also my graphic card is
Nvidia Riva TNT2 and i was using it earlier as 2d
card because of absence of drivers but

Updating your nvidia most likely had changed xorg.conf file. See that resolutions higher than 1024x768 are removed as first.

Firstly:

Please do not post the same thread more than once. Picking the
most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other
members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.

http://www.linuxquestions.org/rules.php

The original is here:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...17#post1926017



Secondly:

Even though the problem may be urgent for you, it's no more
urgent than anybody elses problem to all other members, so
please spare us with that piece of information.



Thirdly:

Choose a sensible thread-title that somehow indicates what
kind of problem you have, "help in recovery , URGENT" means
nothing.


Cheers,
Tink
