Angry RH9 wrongly configured monitor during setup


Hi all,
I am a newbie...
I have recently installed RH9 on my system for the first time... during setup in xconfig screen of the monitor it was showing a generic monitor. my monitor is of daewoo company. since i couldnt find my monitor in daewoo list i just selected another daewoo monitor in the setup screen.
now the installation is complete.. when i load linux now it loads everything and i can see all the text messages of the loading message but after that the screen gets blank and i cant do anything i dont get even the login screen... what should i do.

thanking in advance...
Kalyani

Find the specs for your monitor and then reinstall. When it's time to configure your monitor you can enter them manually as a generic monitor. Although the specs for "Generic Monitor" are probably good enough.

Maybe it's your video card configuration instead of your monitor. Find all the specs for your video card and then boot your machine and instead of starting X do a "cat /etc/X11/XF86Config" and look at the video card section. Does it have the right video card listed and the right settings? If you need to change the settings you can use the "vi" text editor to open and edit the file. You can also change the settings under the monitor section this way too.
