You restart X.
I actually test it (so I can use GUI for email, etc, while testing) by
running (as root) something like:
xinit -- :1
and cat /root/.xinitrc contains the single line:
That way, you can use CTRL-ALT-F8 and CTRL-ALT-F7 to swap between the
two X servers, to read more instructions or whatever.
To actually run X programs (eg. dpyinfo) in the xterm, you need to
export the appropriate DISPLAY, eg:
Also in your xterm you can run any window manager, eg:
and then exit or CTRL-D or CTRL-BACKSPACE to close the X-term.
To fully exit/ restart your regular X (on vt7) once it's all working,
logout, then CTRL-ALT-F1 to go to vt1, log in as root, and something
like one of the following:

First thought: comment out the Horiz... and Vert... refresh lines, and
then try testing your x server.

On second thoughts, perhaps change the VertRefresh line to "60"
instead of "60 - 75" to try to force it to only to 60 vertical
