Default Stuck in Generic mode

I had problems getting any output once I log on to linux (red hat v 9.0). My monitor goes into DVI Standby mode.

I went to the shop where I had the system configured to run linux and windows xp and they said, because the didn't have my monitor they set it to generic (vga)

Does anyone know if there is a way of changing this without re-installing Linux?

Also I am a linux baby (my first year at uni) and I don't know how to do it from GRUB prompt. That is how to get to linux prompt from there.

Thanks

You can manually edit the /etc/X11/XF86Config file and make adjustments, but there might be a Redhat configuration utility that can do it for you.

Hmm, can someone with more Redhat experience give this guy a little help?

when does your screen go blank?

once you login to xfree or when the kernel loads?

Default Got it sorted

Hi Guys

I actually got the problem solved last night. The problem was caused because they had put it in Generic VGA mode at the shop and my monitor was set up as DVI. I just swapped cables and ports and voila it works.

Thanks for taking the time to help.

Cheers
