    less /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    note down HorizSync, VertiRefresh rates, Resolutions and Vedio driver only.
    edit all these values in the xorg.conf file of installed distro.
    OR boot up from Ubuntu LiveCd, press Alt+Ctrl+F1 and edit xorg.conf file.
    sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    press Alt+Ctrl+F7 to check if GUI works.

    execute 'startx' at command line prompt after editing xorg.conf file and post error message if any.

    Sorry that I haven't replied - 150 pages of rubbish ICT coursework on databases is swamping me! They don't even teach us SQL! lol. I'll try that out as soon as I finish reinstalling Windows XP (I need it for school - IM SORRY lol!)

    Finished building PC using PC Pro's A-List! Will add specs soon =)
