Hi,

Another very interesting file to look at is
/var/log/Xorg.0.log

I have an nvidia card here, that's unable to correctly display on the
VGA display without me telling Xorg that is had to use CRT-1 output : I
found out thanks to that file what was the problem...

Please look for errors and warnings in that logfile...
Regards
