Startx Fatal server error, No screens found
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 26, 2004
I am new to BSD, in fact this is the first time i have ever tried it, i read up on it, liked the sounds of it and Replaced my nice Slackware installation with it.
I did the "Full Install" option and didnt really configure anything but the mouse and dhcp (wich didnt work cause i cant telenet).
Now im no where near advanced enough to start playing in black and white- i need a Gui for the time being.
But when i type in Startx i get fatal server error , no screens found.
Now i can not utelise this pc im using right now for much longer- i would appreciate a swift reply when you have the time - else i re-install slack and wonder what i might have missed out on.

Can you post the content of the last lines of /var/log/XFree86.0.log (or Xorg.0.log, if it's x.org you're using)? I had the same problem with an nvidia card, but the problem probably hasn't actually got anything to do with a screen not found but with something else; the screen error message is just the result of a series of errors. In my case it was a set of two undefined symbols in the nvidia driver which led to the nvidia mdoule not getting loaded. In the log file it actually says something along the lines of 'I did find a screen, but there's no useful configuration'.
startx redhat 9.0 Fatal server error no screens found:
- date: September 8, 2003
attempting to upgrade a redhat 9.0 minimal install to include xwindows. (i believe that the problem is that there is no /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 or /etc/X11/XF86Config file. in the old days, i would just type xf86config and work from there but this command is not available).
i used the graphical install to update the system using the custom option without problem. after rebooting, i type startx and get the following error:

XF86free: fatal server error: no screens found
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 5, 2004
Hey everyone, I have recently intalled debian linux on a work machine. I had X working before, and the config file looks good to me. I was wondering if anyone could look it over to see if there is an error in it that I am missing.
It is giving me this error:
#> fatal server error:
#> no screens found
My Hardware: PS/2 scrool mouse, s3 virge video card, gateway vx900 monitor, us-en 104 key keyboard.
Here is my xf86config file:
FontPath "unix/:7100" # local font server
# if the local font server has problems, we can fall back on these
"Fatal server error: no screens found" after updating intel drivers (Intel GMA 3650)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 28, 2012
I've just bought the new netbook Asus 1025c and as soon as I got it out of the paper box I installed on it Slackware 13.37 (dual boot with W7Starter).I compiled the 3.3 kernel in order to get the support, even if experimental, for the Cedarview processor and especially for that GMA 3650 that is now ruining my patience!
Since the compiling of the new kernel I got problems with X because at the logout the screen became black (and the "TerminateServer=true" didn't work for me).
So I downloaded and built from scratch the latest stable release of Intel Linux Graphics (using ./compile -prefix=/usr because otherwise mesa, x86-intel would have been installed on /usr/local). I changed the xorg.conf putting intel as the driver and writing the resolution I achieve in Windows(1024x600). When I rebooted there was no problem until "startx" when appeared that ugly message. I've read some solutions regarding the also "infamous" GMA500 which seems to be the elder si

Trying to start the X Window system using the command "startx" generates the following error (on Debian AMD64, fresh install):
Fatal server error: no screens found
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 26, 2003
The install completed, I set up my user name now when I run startx I get the :Fatal server error: no screens found.
I am so lost at this point.
I have looked up the message in Google and it sais it is a very generic message and to check the log file "/var/log/XFree86.0.log"
Which I have no clue how to check.
Does anyone know the best logical steo to take to get th GUI up and running.
X server. Fatal server error: no screens found. NVidia 9400 card
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 26, 2009
Trying to install Ubuntu Intrepid on my dell XPS 13 laptop.
I was using hardy before this. I did an Internet update. On reboot, X did not start.
(EE) No devices detected.
Fatal server error:
no screens found
X started on Hardy but did not detect my Geforce 9400 card. Hence supported a max resolution of only 800*600 which sucked. Tried playing around with the Nvidia restricted drivers for a while but no results. Thought I would take a shot at Intrepid and see if the resolution improved. The situation has worsened. X is totally bombing out now. I have checked what ubuntuforums has to say on this topic. None of it has helped.
My /var/log/Xorg.0.log is attached.
Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated.
Fatal Server Error: No screens found on RedHat 7.1 XFree86
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 4, 2009
there are several posts related to my problem but not quite what I want. I don't need any effects to be running nor do I need perfect resolution. I have a PCI-E card Nvidia 8600 gts and I need to run redhat 7.1 for reasons that are not debatable. I also have an onboard ati radeon X 1250 but currently I am running the PCI-E.
The installation was successful and ran in GUI, however after installation and reboot, the screen keeps flickering trying to load the desktop.
I just need to get the GUI running the same way the installer was able to run in GUI, I tried editing the XF86Config file to change the driver to either vesa or vga but still didn't work.
Probing for devices is not an option since the card is not listed and the maximum video ram goes up to 64MB in xconfigurator. It probes my card as a VGA generic with 1 MB ram.
I know there is a way to have the desktop load just the same as the installer's gui settings but that's where I need help.
Here is my XF86C
ubuntu 12.02 Fatal server error: no screens found (EE)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 17, 2014
I recently ran the update manager and updated my stuff.
unfortunatelly i also upgraded the nvidia driver - which causes my system not to recognise my screens anymore.
if i startup ubuntu now i get only the command line.
i tried repairing xserver-xorg and reinstalling x.org.
at some point i had it working again on 1 monitor (im using 2) but after rebooting it didnt anymore
I dont know how to fix this and really need help.
I have a log file of x.org but i cannot post it here since i cant access it at the moment (posting this from the win7 installed as dual boot on the same system)
P.s. I tried several suggestions found on the forum but nothing works so far...
(tried: sudo dpkg-reconfogure xserver-xorg
sudo service gdm start (doesnt recognise service)
tried sudo unity but it gives a warning that no displays are found.
P.p.s. title needs to be 12.04 not 12.02
