I have Ubuntu 14.04 running in a VMware Workstation VM. While attempting to resize some partitions I decided I needed to get shared folders to work properly, so I clicked
VM > Reinstall VMware Tools and followed the prompts to install VMware Tools. That worked and shared folders started working. After restarting, however, I now get a black screen after logging in. First I thought the whole VM was locking up but then I discovered that making the VMware window smaller than a certain size made the desktop appear, and making it larger again makes the VM go black. It also displays an error message:
Could not configuration for CRTC 63
What could be causing this and how do I fix it?
