I'm experiencing a problem with my display, such that I'm unable to get a text console. I boot my system, to see "Cannot display this video mode" on my monitor, rather than the typical system-startup messages. If I wait long enough for the system to fully boot, X starts fine, and I'm able to log into an X session.
The issue seems to be related to my Dell system; The following is a page from Dell support:
But their reccommended solution doesn't help at all. Can anyone help me out here? I'm not even sure where to begin with this one; my natural inclination was to re-install the nvidia drivers (I'm using a GeForce 6800 GT if that helps), but as my system is completely non-functional unless it's in an X server, that's not an option. Attatched is my xorg.conf.
Can anyone give me a hand here?
