That usually means that your graphics card is trying to display a video mode which is too high for your screen, e.g. you try to display 1600x1200 at 85 Hz which your card might support but the screen can only handle 1280x1024 at 75 Hz at maximum. Instead of destroying itself by trying to display something it cannot handle your screen is switching off and instead shows this warning message. You probably have to reconfigure your X.org
environment again? Someone please correct me but I think the correct command is:
- Code: Select all

and related to networking. I don't think that this has anything to do with the errors you experience.

Sounds to me like your GUI is misconfigured. Can you try the command above please? Also, could you please take a look if this file exists on your system: /var/log/Xorg.0.log
... And, if it exists, could you please post the contents here?

That might be normal sort of, because you are in "rescue mode" it is possible that certain system services were not properly activated. The error message probably will not appear once you start your system normally again.
