Wrong screen resolution when starting up

I have installed the 32-bit version and everything went well, but at the startup, my screen is messed up. My monitor says that the resolution is not supported. I cannot get by this screen because I cannot read anything. So the question is: How can I get on? Is there some boot option that I can enter, or a file I can edit so the screen stays readable. I have a Radeon 9600tx graphics card and an LCD-monitor which goes up to 1280x1024 75Hz. In the Xorg.conf it says that it uses the VESA-driver. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

SOLVED! I went into single

SOLVED! I went into single mode user and did: "dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg" Then I gave in manually the values that correspond with my hardware (I chose 1280x1024@60Hz as preferred resolution) and everything worked like a charm. Thanks!

Try this

http://www.64studio.com/node/197 Take a look at the suggestion by Icadwell. At least you can try changing the resolution and frequency. Start in single user mode from GRUB and use the command line. Good luck
