X not launching


Hi,

One day I installed ATi Drivers, and next time when I booted up it didnt load X, so what could be possibly wrong? I got ATi Radeon 9600XT and Samsung SyncMaster 913N

It would help if you told us what error messages you've been getting. They should be stored in a log, in /var/log. Mine is Xorg.0.log, yours may be different. You can get the lines from that file that have errors in them by doing:

$ cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep EE

and that will output all the lines that contain "EE" (or simply post the contents of the file). Knowing what distro you use is gonna help us as well.

I guess your /etc/X11/xorg.conf is messed up, may be you can show us what's in it.
