If i'm not mistaken you have a
savage video driver. First check out linux-laptops to see if anyone
has their /etc/X11/XF86Config
file posted there

To see if your graphics card is
supported under XFree86 see:

To see how to configure your graphics card see:

If you can't really wait or its not supported then use the vesa or
framebuffer driver:
