Your xorg.conf file will come up. ctrl+v scrolls down, ctrl+y scrolls up. Look for this section.

Yours will probably say "nv" where mine says "nvidia". Using your arrow keys, backspace and all, change that to read "vesa". If it says "vesa" change it to "nv".

ctrl+o to save, hit enter to write, then ctrl+x to exit nano.

Back at the command prompt type "exit". this will bring you from the recovery console to your login, hopefully with a desktop. If it does, reboot, make sure X (your graphical desktop) comes up.

Post back with results and we'll take it from there.

Great , Thanks grey 1 , your help is much appreciated, Just woke up from a snooze, thats why I have not replied, I'll post back shortly with the results.
