    Not sure it will help, but you might try running XF86Config as root:

    Code:
    XF86Config
    Answer the questions correctly with your hardware info and it might allow a starx.

    Yes, it would be done as root in text-based console. You'll have to know the specs on your monitor, video card, mouse, and keyboard. You may have to use a generic driver for your video card if it's not in the list of options, or you can download and install a specific driver for it such as nvidia, or ati.

    also if it is an nvidia card you can download the driver from their website...which has easy to follow linux installation instructions.
