Fatal error?

Alright, here is the issue. When I attempt to start Gnome, it tells me that no screens were found, and gives me a fairly long error message. I am unable to actually do anything else, I can't configure anything, or start Gnome. What does this error mean, and how do I fix it? P.S. I'm using mandrake 9.1.... thanks.

We're gonna need just little more. More of what error text is spit out [EE] denotes errors when X crashes. No Screens is caused by several things. X tries to load wrong vid drivers, monitor doesn't support the resolution specified and so on. Give a little hardware info. How are you trying to start Gnome, command line or do you see the graphical logon? Has it EVER worked? If so what was the last thing did before it stopped working?

Alright, in the case of the [EE], it simply says, no devices detected. In fact, it used to work, and I've been using it for a little over a week now. I'm trying to start Gnome through kernel, because that's all I can get right now. The last thing that happened was my system froze while attempting to watch a video. Thanks for any help.
