Lightbulb SYNC :OUT OF RANGE after xorg changes - RHEL4


hi...
i'm working on RHEL 4. i was doing some stuff on X-Server... me as a root said the following commands
# system-config-display
then i went to set the resolution of my monitor which was set to "800x600" earlier n i edited it to " 1024x768 "
now i m not able to goto runlevl 5...
i rebooted the system by setting default runlevel as 3 in /etc/inittab file...
now i said #startx
again i was not able 2get Graphical Login Screen
i get a BLANK screen displaying message as " SYNC :OUT OF RANGE"
how shall i proceed then...
i thought of editing /etc/X11/xorg.conf file also..
but was of no use
required service xfs is as usual running
please help me....

Basically you need to edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf, and set the values that you changed back to what they were before. Ie - in the screen section, find the Modes line, and delete any resolutions above 800x600.

Then try to start X, and post back here what happened.

I hope this helps

hi thanx ...
yup i was trying that only...
actually i saw a file called xorg.conf.backup in /etc/X11 dir..
opened it n saw that there was no such resolution that i have added
so i went to original xorg.conf file n removed the line "1024x768" from SubSection "Display" --> Modes ...........
finally i changed the default runlevel n then Graphical screen came up
bye !!

I have renamed this thread to be desciptive of the problem it describes. Please do not mark your threads urgent, LQ is staffed and run by volunteers and no one, not even the admin, is paid by the site. What's urgent to you is not urgent to anyone else.
