anything is possible.

being that you said it worked from a desktop terminal, and now your son
says it is messed up during boot, i have more wonder.

as further suggestion, power down system, remove cover, remove monitor
connector, remove screw holding video card.

remove and reinsert video card, replace screw, replace monitor connector,
power back up, press <delete> key to go to bios setup.

if all is well, great. if not, new video card.

if all is well, exit bios setup, reboot to level 3 command line.
run '/usr/bin/system-config-display' to resetup monitor.



peace out.
