Mandrake 8.2 upgrade and videocard problems

Hi All!

Recently I upgraded my Mandrake 8.1 lunix to 8.2. After the upgrade, everything worked fine EXCEPT: when I'm in X and I switch to a virtual console using <ALT>F1 and go back to X with F7, my puter freezes. Also, when I use the Mandrake control center to check my hardware, the system also freezes. When I try to alter my videocard and monitor settings: same thing. Can anyone help me? This is very annoying, because when I try something and the system freezes, I have to shut down the machine and staring it up again takes very long because of the filesystem check.

Please help!:smash:

Mdk8.2 aint broken - that's windo$e

Take a look at the Xfree log in /var/log (I think!) - it should tell you what is messing up the X server, which is what this sounds like.....
