Using a Toshiba Satellite L500D with ATi 3100 graphics. Installed to HDD and no problems. Away a while but when I returned to boot into PCLinucOS 2010 ( been playing with Windows 7 ) I get dumped to the command prompt, can log in and change to su but when I issue 'startx' I get "screen not found". I suspect that while in Windows the graphics updated and now PCLos cannot see the card anymore.
Is there a easy fix for this? I'm asking because its been a while since I used the command prompt to get things done AND I suspect that PCLos is OK otherwise. Would be a pity to have to start over.
Right now ( I boot Vista, Windows7 and PCLos ) the windows OS have no problem with graphics but PCLos dosen't see anything at all exept the boot startup screen and then straight to dos type command prompt.
I will not mind booting into basic graphic mode but do not recall how to do this. Once there I would be able to use PCC to get things up to date and PCLos (GUI) working for me again on this system.
Any suggestions anyone? Note: I'm not an advocate for re-installation unless it's really necessary because for me, it dosen't fix anything, nor does it identify the problem. So looking for a way to fix it if possible.
