Startx, no screens found error


Hey, so I'm having troubles with my ubuntu linux install. I got version 4.10. After I install it with pretty normal settings, my xserve won't startup. In general the error is "Fatal Server Error: no screens found". As far as I can tell, this is something to do with a problem using my video card or monitor, am I right? I'm running a GeForce FX5200 128MB video card with a Sony SDM-S73 display.

Thanks for your help.

Try reconfiguring your xserver by running xf86config or a similar tool.

Try to reconfigure your /etc/X11/Xf86config

run XFree86 in /root, it probes your machine and determine the model of your video card, then copy the XF86config.new file outputted form your /root to /etc/x11/. Maybe before rename the old file.
Now run xf86cfg -textmode, it read you config file and let you to reconfigure it. Modify all but the section Cards because XFree86 just determine your PCI adress and your driver.

Then try startx, good luck
