Please help me get back into X!

Asked by Aaron Whitehouse

After updates on the 21st to Breezy my X no longer starts.

The message which I am getting is "Screen(s) found but none at correct resolution". I have a 1400x1050 screen on my laptop (Dell Inspiron 510m). Up until then it had been working correctly. I had 855resolution installed because, without it, I could not run at 1400x1050 and everything was blurry.

Please tell me what logs/information you need and where I can get them from.

Does anyone have any suggestions to get me back operational in X?

You can reconfigure X server, type dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg and reconfigure xorg, then if it's all ok you can return back to X.
