Anyways, I installed Linux Mint, and then installed the ATI drivers from the ATI website (Catalyst Control Center). I restarted my computer, it booted fine, and then I went to play a game. I was playing fullscreen, and all of a sudden my game minimizes to a window and I cant move the mouse or do anything, (I've heard this was something to do with the screensaver) so I had to hold the power button to turn off. Now Mint won't start. It goes through the loading screen and then goes to a black screen with some weird colors at the top. This could be the drivers or the fact that I turned it off without shutting down, or something else. Idk
I'll post specs, but couldn't find the terminal command I needed to get my PC's Specs, so here they are off of the top of my head -
AMD Athlon 3200+
Ati Radeon x1300
Anyways, I've gotten into the recovery console and selected root so I could type "dpkg -reconfigure xserver-xorg" but it asks me for a root password, but when I type in my password it says incorrect.
I'm relatively new to Linux. I've tried Ubuntu and then Mint but always wound up with a problem and had to resort back to windows.
Thanks a bunch.
