    Does the machine have ATI or NVIDIA graphics?

    Yes, the machine have ATI graphics, I was trying to change vga resolution, the vga max resulotion was 1024x768, I was trying to install AMD Catalyst on PCLinuxos, it couldnt, so I changed to from ATI to Nvidia, that was foolish of, anyways.
    Can I rollback to ATI? Or Do I have Reinstall PCLinuxod kde

    Does the machine even have an nvidia graphics card?
    If not what might have happened is when you installed the driver, did you run
    Code:
    sudo nvidia-xconfig
    or somerthing similar?
    It might be possible that you created an xorg.conf file that the system loads, but in it it tells the system to load the nvidia driver for a card that does not exist.
    perhaps remove that file
    Code:
    rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    if you haven't removed the fglrx driver, the system should find it, or else the open-source radeon driver.
