    Ok...try commenting out the line that begins "DisplaySize" in your monitor section. Also check to make sure that you have the correct HorizSync and VertRefresh values for your monitor.

    hey Saurmont

    Sorry, but I should tell you at this stage, that the localhost login screen consistently flashing every 10 or so seconds occurs after several reboots. Before that ( and what is happening right now when i boot up linux, even after the mods u suggested ) the localhost login screen is displayed for several seconds , then my monitor displays a picture showing the top half of my wallpaper and the rest of the picture is black underneath.
    I did go and lookup a website for my monitors settings. I double checked them with my XF86 config file and the horizontal and vertical scanning frequencies are set correctly in my XF86 Config file.
    I have also set my monitor up as generic since RH9 did not support my model.

    Hmmm....
    At this point, you might think of trying another video card... (it might get too hot and act strangly)
    You could also try another monitor to see the behavior...
    Have you maked sure that the wires were plugued properly, is you AGP well secured..

    I know this sounds like a soft problem... but this should also be done.

    The consistent flashing problem happened last night, but I ran the XServer troubleshooting program, and now Im able to proceed to the login screen. I havent ran it in the past when the problem happened, but ran it today and had found a temporary "solution:. Im still getting the Localhost login screen showing for 5 secs, then shows the warped wallpaper image, but Im still able to reach the GUI login.

    Correct me if im wrong, but Im guessing that the changes that Saurmont suggested in my monitor section in my XF86 config file must have prevented ithe computer from locking up ?? Anyhow Im proceeding with updating my graphics card driver to not rule out any possibilities of error.

    BTW Any users who own a Samsung SYncMaster 152T ( 15 inch) LCD, would u happen to know if there are linux drivers available for it ???
