My ubuntu (version 10.10 i think) is stuck in loop at the login screen. looks like it could be a resolution issue. - i have an nvidia graphics card (gs 8400). I previously had it connected to a 19" monitor however disconnected mid session and since then the issue has persisted. I tried uninstalling the gdm package and reinstalling and running an apt-get update however the login loop still there.
Is there another way i can reset the resolution settings to fix this looping issue?
I can get into the desktop by going through the rescue mode and using startx but its not a solution.
