Xubuntu screwed up after hooked to tv
I have a older dell inspiron laptop running xubuntu 9.10. It has run fine for quite a while. I recently hooked it up to my plasma tv to watch some some movies and now it crashes when I try to log in.
The process I used to hook it to the TV was: connect VGA cable then boot into the external monitor, then shutdown. I have done this in the past with other laptops and it always went back to normal when I boot without the VGA cord attached.
What happens now is I try to log in then the screen flashes and sends me back to the login screen. One more thing to add, I didn't have to use the login screen prior to this problem, it was set for auto-login.
How can I fix this? I can get to the terminal via CTRL + F2 and via SSH.
