I have a relative who made the mistake of changing the resolution of her display to something that her monitor does not support. The monitor no longer displays anything.If she connects another monitor to the computer, the monitor will work properly. If she boots off the live CD, her current monitor works properly. If she swaps out her graphics card with another with the current monitor, there is no display.Apparently, there is a remembered setting for the resolution of her particular monitor. Is there a way that it can be reset back to the default?

I was playing around with the default panel that has the power icon (wrong lingo maybe) and the network/sound icons, etc.I deleted some items including the power icon and now for the life of me can't find it in the panel applets list in lubuntu.Is there a way to restore the default panel with the settings as when I first installed lubuntu.I also played with some spacings and other settings so would rather just get it back to normal/restore it vs add all the items back on and then play with the spacings again.

Recently I tried to change my login screen with plymouth in the terminal, i got to the part that shows all of the different login screens you can have, so I clicked the one I wanted. When I tried to log back in, the theme was basically the same as the default, but it made me click log in, enter my username, click accept again, then enter the password. So I was wondering how I could make it the default login screen where it's all on one screen.
My panels in Ubuntu have changed appearance, and I can't figure out how to put them back to the default settings in 10.04, and I can't use my widgets, like Evolution. How do you restore them to the default settings?
I have had this problem with all installations of Maverick Meerkat. Moving the default clock from the upper panel to the lower panel makes it bahave strangely. When clicked on, it now appears in the middle of the screen (sometimes even higher depending on resolution). This never happened prior to Maverick Meerkat.
I've lost my GUI while attempting to install the latest ATI proprietary driver. I followed their instructions on how to uninstall it but it didn't give me my GUI back. How do I get back to the default drivers that came with my installation? I have a Radeon 3850.
Booting into safe mode doesn't give me a GUI.
I want to try to reinstall the ATI proprietary drivers eventually. I have them on the hard drive, but I have had no luck installing them using the CLI so far.
my files on the desktop, in my home directory went missing. Also looking at my harddrive it seems like it has completely wiped out my content.I had some important files on my desktop and I am wondering if there is any way to get them back?
