Okay ! My Mistake. You are using Debian and I though its Ubuntu.
Use su - to gain root privileges.
This time, type password of root user instead of your own password.
su - nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf

i just tried to login though the command line and it accepts my login no problems. When I try to login through the welcome screen it takes my login and after a brief pause, takes me back to the welcome screen again. Anyone please help!

Mmmhh ... could have two causes:
1) The home-directory is not readable - Test: Go to the Login-Menu and try to login as "fail save". If this works, the home directory is reable
2) The GUI does not start - in this case log "fail save" and reinstate the orginal xorg.conf (from posting No. 3 - http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/deb...tml#post788835 ):
su mv xorg.conf xorg.conf.bak.2 mv xorg.conf.bak xorg.conf

i don't understand the log in under "fail safe" . Is that the user name? If so what do I use for a password?
And when you say login- menu do you mean the Blue Debian "welcome" login page??

If this login fails, there is most likely a problem with your home directory. So this is a first test to be sure that you login-difficulties are not caused by this.

ok the session login did not work so I guess I have a home directory problem. what can I do about that?
