I googled and found some useful suggestions but I can't seem to get any commands to work for me from the command line... any tips would be appreciated.
Once the install left me at the command prompt I typed:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorgand got back the response: /bin/sh/: sudo: not found
I also tried another solution:
chroot /root nano etc/X11/xorg.conf. and got back the response: chroot: cannot execute nano: No such file or directory
dell dimension e510
SND CARD CHAINTECH|CT-AV710 7.1 RTL
VGA MSI A X800 128M RX800-TD128E
Seems like my MSI card, which I believe is the same as an ATI Radeon x800 is the cause of the problem.
I even tried to pico solution which was to "type pico /etc/X11/xorg.conf. Find your video card, and change driver "nv" to "vesa"." but got the following error: /bin/sh: pico: not found
I'm guessing that I'm just not in the right path to be typing these commands, but I'm not sure where I need to type these commands from. Any help would be appreciated!
