Unhappy Monitor problem !! need help


Hi, I'm pieter lievens, I'm quite a noob in linux.

This was my first time I'm installed Linux Mandrake 9

After the installation and the log in of linux (as root)

when I logged in successfully and wont to start:

startx
or
startkde
or
startgnome

they said there was an error:::

/etc/X11/XF86Config

config error= /etc/X11/XF86Config:11

monitor "monitor1(underlined)"
Not a declared monitor

When I install mandrake I had to choose an X-server

so I have taken the Nvidia , Geforce 4

you can test your configuration in the installation self (of the monitor), but already there was a config error

I have a MSI (microstar) TI 4200 VTD8X (agp 8x)
(geforce 4)

but that wasn't in the X-server list or something like that

Somebody can help me
plz

Thx
Pieter

If you can, try going into the BIOS and setting your video card to agp 4X, or even 2x and see what happens.

Cheers--
