I had a similar problem with my Dell Inspiron.  Turned out that X
prior to 4.0 doesn't like that specific card, which is found
on many many laptops.  I downloaded a patched X server
(www.eecs.umich.edu/~steveh/inspiron/x_method1.html), and X forthwith ran
like the proverbial charm.  You could also download a newer XFree86.  Try
it and let me know how it works.
