I had trouble getting the non-free firmware to help so after a compilation of about ten articles here it is:
My xorg.conf did not exist
I used editor and typed this up:
Section "Device" Identifier "VGA" Driver "vesa" EndSection Section "Screen" Identifier "Default Screen" DefaultDepth 24 EndSection
Well ignore the rest of this being in this kind of text it looks like I'm
Stuck. After that I saves it in xorg.conf and
Used startx and it worked perfectly!
Sorry about the horrible post I don't know how to get out of this box.
