Xorg "desperate mode" guide if failsafe mode fails you :P

Even failsafe mode doesn't work on your system?
Cool down and follow Xorg "Desperate mode" guide smile
1) Go in another tty (for example tty2)
Ctrl + Alt + F2
2)login as root
3)Remove all shipped video drivers w/ AB

pacman -R xf86-video-apm xf86-video-ark xf86-video-ast\
 xf86-video-ati xf86-video-chips xf86-video-cirrus\
 xf86-video-dummy xf86-video-fbdev xf86-video-glint\
 xf86-video-i128 xf86-video-i740 xf86-video-intel\
 xf86-video-mach64 xf86-video-mga xf86-video-neomagic\
 xf86-video-nv xf86-video-r128 xf86-video-rendition\
 xf86-video-s3 xf86-video-s3virge xf86-video-savage\
 xf86-video-siliconmotion xf86-video-sis xf86-video-sisusb\
 xf86-video-tdfx xf86-video-trident xf86-video-tseng\
 xf86-video-v4l xf86-video-vesa xf86-video-vmware\
 xf86-video-voodoo xf86-video-xgi xf86-video-xgixp\
 ati-dri intel-dri mach64-dri mga-dri r128-dri\
 savage-dri sis-dri tdfx-dri xf86-video-geode

4)type "lspci | grep VGA"
install your appropriate video driver
wicd-curses to connect to your wifi network if not already connected through LAN

# pacman -Syy
# pacman -S your-right-video-driver
# init 3
go back to tty2 and Ctrl + C to stop Xorg. This is required only if Xorg actually started but in a messed up way
# Xorg -configure
# cp /root/xorg.conf.new /etc/X11/xorg.conf
# su - live
$ startx

5) You made it big_smile
