I keep trying to get X started again but this big error messege basically saying i have no drivers comes up. I would post the exact messege but i dont know how to copy when its like this.

If you are moving to the new modular Xorg7, then you will have to specify what you want in your make.conf. You should put a line in make.conf that says (at the least)
That should get you the basic drivers, and allow X to start if you are using modular X.

An "lspci" should tell you which card you have.
That is the how-to for the modular X. You should be able to get it runnung using that.
To copy paste in CLI, just highlight it with the mouse (assuming you have gpm running) and middle click in another VT and it will paste what is highlighted.

From a quick Google search, it looks as if the Intel 82845 chipset uses the i810 driver. Try that and post back if it doesn't work.

From what I am seeing on the Gentoo forums, you need to compile the Intel 915 driver as a module while compiling your kernel, and put "i810" in your video card selection.
A couple of links that may help you:
