I've got Sapphire Radeon x800se and my LCD Screen is Nec Multisync 20WGX2.
The newes drivers from Ati are installed and working fine in X11. But when I am trying to go into bash mode the screen goes all black and there is no response from the computer. I have plugged in both cables DVI and VGA, so i can watch the startup messages. Is there anything i can do? Can't log of KDE and change user.
This is my inittab
I can see all the letters when the computer starts up. But when i try to leave X11 the screen says there is no input. will add my xorg.conf just to be safe or it may be of use.
Wow really fast respond thanks.

Does it work from GRUB if you specify run-level 3 or if you edit your /etc/inittab ?
Sorry Michael i can't post my settings for you to see.
I don't know what i should look for in the inittab file. Tried to add some sequences from my old xorg.conf into the new but the x11 server crashed.
Can't post long files, my posts get deleted.
Hello changed the value to 3. Started X11 manually afterwards and tried to shut it down again. Computer freezes, my screen goes black. There is no output on the dvi or the vga, is there anyway to force the graphic card to use vga in bash and dvi in x11?
