Screen turned Black (Off)

Postby arneoog » Thu Oct 22, 2009 7:41 am


I was trying to make my Mint 6 laptop to show on a TV..
..probably did it all wrong.. Well!
I went to the screen resolution settings to see what was there.. and managed to set it to clone screen..
My screen is now Off on the laptop, and I can't turn it back on.. o.o''
There is no image on any TV or whatnot either >.<

Is there any way to fix this? :S

Thanks.. :]

perhaps someone can post a virgin config file for this guy to replace in the command line. Perhaps he can take it directly off a live boot CD.
