    Hi and Welcome !

    Could you post exact error message here?
    Execute this
    Code:
    su -
    /sbin/lspci | grep -i vga
    grep -i driver /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    Post output here.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    You also need to include the exact error messages that are shown on the screen when you run "startx".

    Replace vesa with i810 in xorg.conf file.
    Execute this
    Code:
    su -
    nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    Press Ctrl+X, Y and hit Enter key to save file.

    Try intel now and in case it doesn't work, post the contents of xorg.conf file here ( Section Monitor and Screen only).

    Driver "synaptics"
    Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"

    EndSection

    Section "Device"

    xorg,conf looks fine to me.
    Try to reconfigure Display settings. Execute this
    Code:
    system-config-display
