I can only offer you some general advice but it may be helpful. Can
you post output fom dmesg, lspci, and lsmod as well here. Have you
read all the documentation about X. liNUX IS lINUX. Read the
documentation about X either online or with your distro. Read dmesg
and look for errors about your graphics card. Is the problem with X or
with the graphics card - try google to find out.
