new video card
Ok i set up my linux bvos with a new ati card from my old geforce card. When i went to reset the pc it gave me a fatal error. How do i get it to not go into the gui so i can change the card from geforce to ATI?

When does it say "fatal error"?
You could try using a rescue CD, mounting your drive and change your X Config file manually
