What do you mean with can't identify?

Is it not appearing in /proc/pci?

If it does appear there but your X just won't start, try doing xf86config again(as root ofcourse). Try loading different drivers(vesa in stead of ati, or ati in stead of vesa if you had vesa so far). And look up the manual for your screen and set your own screen settings.

If you are experienced enough you can also just edit the /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 file to the settings you wish to use.

After trying your new options restart X.

If this is totally not what you were looking for, plz give some more info cause I wasn't sure what you ment by it ;)

My "XF86Config-4" now is:
----------------------------------------------------
Section "Device"
Identifier "Generic Video Card"
Driver "vesa"
Option "UseFBDev" "true"
EndSection
Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Generic Monitor"
HorizSync 30-70
VertRefresh 50-160
Option "DPMS"
EndSection
Section "Screen"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Device "Generic Video Card"
Monitor "Generic Monitor"
--------------------------------------------------------------------
How should I edit it?

Driver "vesa"
Change to
Driver "ati"


HorizSync 30-70
VertRefresh 50-160
Change to whatever is in the manual of your screen.

However I do recommend to try with the xf86config command. I'm guessing you don't have that much experience and with that 'wizard' you can't mess up too much.

You can also just try it manually and if that doesn't work do xf86config.

Good luck.

What does it say then? You should get a log when it tried to start X and the last couple of lines may have some (EE) lines in it. Post here the last lines and maybe we can figure out what's going wrong.

To view the logfile if you don't see it in the concole type: dmesg

OK,here is the log(after i change "ati" back to "vesa" because i can't startx):
Disabled Privacy Extensions on device c02c95a0(lo)
IPv6 over IPv4 tunneling driver
apm: BIOS version 1.2 Flags 0x03 (Driver version 1.16ac)
apm: overridden by ACPI.
apm: BIOS version 1.2 Flags 0x03 (Driver version 1.16ac)
apm: overridden by ACPI.
apm: BIOS version 1.2 Flags 0x03 (Driver version 1.16ac)
apm: overridden by ACPI.
apm: BIOS version 1.2 Flags 0x03 (Driver version 1.16ac)
apm: overridden by ACPI.
mtrr: 0xc0000000,0x8000000 overlaps existing 0xc0000000,0x80000
Now i think that may be because i didn't install ATI Driver,but i couldn't find it on the net .
