Some time back he posted his xorg.conf file. It noted VESA as the
driver. Ergo, he has one. Somewhere.
You know what? If the OP would type sudo lshw and uparrow to read the
display section, then we'd KNOW what the system thinks he has.
description: VGA compatible controller
product: G96 [GeForce 9400 GT]
vendor: nVidia Corporation
physical id: 0
bus info: pci at 0000:01:00.0
width: 64 bits
Prolly should have suggested this before... then we'd KNOW what the bios
is letting the OS play with. So, if the OP would do this, and report his
result, that will narrow down the problem.
