I accidentally changed my monitor to the wrong one (panasonic p70 instead of panasonic s70) and now when i boot up, the screen will flicker once then just turn blank. i tried to use my backed up XF86Config file and that didnt work, so im guessing the monitor driver is stored in a different file. could someone help me out, im a deperate newbie hehe
I have had nightmares with me trying to get my GEM 17' flat screen to work with monitor drivers. What I did in the end and what helped me was I wrote down all of the monitor specifactaions and then put them in manually in my XF86 file. I dont update my kernal and I have no problems.
