8o Hello to everyone,
I know this is really stupid, but I really do need some help with my problem. I read most of the threads here with the same issue but it seems that some steps in fixing this problem are specific on what type of pc hardware, #! lite is installed.
So it has failed to start the X server. I'm really new to this linux world and this is the first OS I installed because it seems to have a good support and background.
I checked for the details and it says, "Fatal server error: no screen found"
there are two things that I am hoping to find in posting this redundant topic.
1. Hope somebody can help me out with this problem.
2. Hope someone can provide me links to info about this type of graphic interface, other alternatives and things that i can use to properly understand this type of OS.
things that I aim for.
1st - Achieve/Receive the two given hopes.
and 2nd - Share #! with people here in my country as an alternative to pricey OS that requires heavy duty hardware. There is no single soul here that I have seen that is using Linux OS. So I hope that I can start and share #! because it's compatible with most, if not all PCs that has been given up hope by others.
PS. Can someone provide me the script or command to know what type of video card my netbook has??I do am sorry for this additional topic and thanks in advance for those who can help.

Post output of these command, please:
uname -r lspci -knn | grep -EiA2 vga
The first command will show us which kernel version you are using,
The second command will give some details about your graphics card and the kernel driver it is using.
Thank you for the reply. I will try it out later when I get the free time.
I have another question. Do I need to have an internet connection all the time to fix this issue on my netbook? I connect mostly on Wifi since I am always traveling, and it seems that I do not have any idea on how to connect to a Wifi without reaching the Desktop. I can't check if CrunchBang Lite can detect Wifi Signals since I am unable to reach to the point where the desktop shows up on the screen.
If there are commands that can manually connect to a wifi with the X (graphic interface) off, please post it here, thanks.
If all goes well and it can detect Wifi signals, that would be the start for me to properly learn how CrunchBang really works.
I have seen numerous reviews about many Linux distros but this is the best I have seen. After all it has Speed Functionality and Beauty.
