It works! Thanks for your help guys. You've all been repped
So what steps did you take exactly to fix it? It always helps to have these kinds of things documented for future reference. And if the issue comes up on Google as a result of someone's search, we can potentially get more people on OCN.
Hm... Are your graphic drivers installed? You might want to try a fresh xorg.conf file (located in /etc/X11). Make sure you always back this file up, though (sudo then copy the file to something with a different name; use the same directory).
Anyone remember how to do the reconfiguration of xorg?
