FreeBSD-12.1 on laptop

Ok - I deleted that faulty line from /etc/rc.conf and now system boots up.
and fails saying "can't load drm-kmod: no such file/directory".
Per another google post, it tried:
#kldload drm2, and that worked (i.e. loaded)
However startx is still failing - same framebuffer error.
Could someone suggest how to fix this?
Thanks so much for your help!
