    If you're getting to a graphical mode and it's just not working you should be able to hit 'Ctrl+Alt+F1' and it will bring you to a text mode login screen.

    To edit the xorg.conf you could use:
    Code:
    sudo vi /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    Scroll down to the line you want to edit and press "i" to be able to start typing. If you like another text editor use that one instead.

    If it doesn't work you can try with this

    dpkg-configure xserver-xorg

    A lot more friendly

    If it works, and it looks right. i would leave it... if you're talking about the vertical or horizontal refresh rate that is. Am i assuming correctly?
