    So you have installed debian once then install it again.

    If you have a debian installation and you just screwed up the xorg.conf you need to reconfigure it.

    Code:
    dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
    for video card:
    download the newest driver from ati.amd.com
    and install your kernel headers
    Code:
    apt-get install linux-headers
    if the package does not exist find some similar one
    use
    Code:
     apt-cache search header
    after an
    Code:
    apt-get update
    then use the graphical installer of the vga driver.

    sound:

    give us the output of
    Code:
     lspci
