As usual there isn;t enough information to be able to help, post the exact error as it comes up.

What distro are you using? graphcis card? what you changed?

No, which Linux distribution e.g. Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, Gentoo, etc. Although posting your graphics card specs wouldn't hurt either.

Why don't you run xorgconfig on the command line (while logged in as root) and try reconfiguring your X windows. I think this was suggested in another thread -- did you try it?

to make thing easier, when you run the xortconfig set the drive to vesa, egleast you will have a gui then and you can look for the solutions while running linux.

You mean you know the type as in tft/crt and pci-E/AGP or manufacturer or what?

the easiest way is to check them for vendor info/serial numbers and plug them into google and see what it turns up
