    hi casper,

    i pressed ctrl+alt+f1 after selecting kernel18 and entered "sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf" and pressed enter. a text mode file appeared. what i found in that is as below:

    Section "Device"
    identifier "Graphics XXXXXXX"
    end section

    thats all so i added manually the things u gave and pressed ctrl+x, y and switched to ctrl+alt+f7 and logged in, but in vain. the same case also now. i got a blank screen still. am awaiting ur reply. thanks in advance. one thing i ld like to ask is "shall i uninstall ubuntu as i installed thru wubi installer". i found uninstall option also. shall i uninstall and install again in my box. is it necessary, please advice me.

    If you have installed Ubuntu through Wubi then go for re-install.
    In case you want to fix this problem without re-installation, post the Video Card section of xorg.conf file here.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    # This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
    # values from the debconf database.
    #
    # Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page.
    # (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
    #
    # This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
    # if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
    # package.
    #
    # If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
    # again, run the following command:
    # sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg
