    sudo service gdm start gives me gdm start/running then a process ID. CTRL-ALT-F7 brings me to the same screen though.

    Also, I tried appending vga=318 but that did not have any effect.

    In case this helps, after "Stopping GNOME Display Manager," it says:

    Once again, thanks for the troubleshooting!
    @emerick7-- I'm sorry if I missed it, but I don't see where you posted what video card you are using(?) ... also, you said you tried "vga=318"...

    If you could post the results from
    Code:
    sudo hwinfo --framebuffer
    or 
    sudo hwinfo --framebuffer > ~/video_results.txt
    Please insure that you highlighlight it and press the "#" button to wrap code tags around it. That will tell us what video you have and what modes are available to it.
