    [SOLVED] X-Wondows booting problem


    hello guys,

    I have successfully installed a dual boot OS with Windows XP and Linux (CentOS 5). It work actually but it was just a couple of times. Booting from Windows is fine but with Linux it gives me some kind of error like:

    fatal server error
    no screens found
    XIO: Fatal IO error 104 (Connetion reset by peer) on X server ":0.0" after 0 request (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining.
    i hope anyone could give some idea how to fix this problem...

    thanks in advanced...

    Hi and Welcome !

    Press Alt+Ctrl+F1. log in as Regular User and execute startx command. Does it throw same error?
    Try to reconfigure display settings :
    Code:
    su -
    system-config-display
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    system-config-display command will ask a few questions about Display Card, Monitor and supported Resolutions.
    Execute this to reboot machine :
    Code:
    shutdown -r now
    Graphics should work fine on reboot.
