Question 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.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.

It's triple post. I'm closing this one. Please send all answers here:
