Error: ID "x" respawing too fast (Screen Flickers)
Hello Friends:

I just installed the "Workstation" version of Linux 7.1 and am getting the following message:

=> Id "x" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes

The screens keeps flickering every couple of seconds (i.e just goes blank). I selected a monitor that was close but not exactly the same as mine during the installation (since my monitor was not listed). My monitor is 21" Flat panal. The one I selected was a 17" flat panel. Wondering if that has something to do with it.

If so would I need to reinstall Linux or can I change the monitor setup from within. Not sure whats going on. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
