Xserver is falling down. Try to make an /etc/X11/xorg.conf file.

Boot to the recovery mode and drop to the root prompt and run

Code: Select all

mount -o remount,rw /
Xorg -configure
cp /root/xorg.conf.new /etc/X11/xorg.conf
sync
reboot
PS. ignore the error messages. :wink:
PS2. if xorg.conf does not work, remove it.

Code: Select all

sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Grub does not show (got 2 users) and I can't get to grub meny
only mintmeny shows and loops with warning of 10 seconds constantly (aut login on 1 user after 10 sec.)

I got the option to mount my drive as an usb disc if this is an easier approach ?
