    I recently insatalled Ubuntu Studio 10.10 over my previous Ubuntu 9.10 installation on my laptop. After installing Ubuntu Studio 10.10 and found the drivers for my graphics card, NVIDIA GeForce 4 GO, and installed it. After rebooting the BIOS loaded fine but once Ubuntu started booting I got a blank screen on my laptop.
    If somebody could please let me know what I need to change in the xorg.conf file that will change the default monitor back to the built-in laptop monitor.

    PS: I have experienced this problem before and was able to fix it after alot of searching.
