5)Are you getting any error messages that are not part of the log
files you've included? No.. I am not getting any error message.
Check /var/log/xorg.0.log (or /var/log/XFree86.0.log) and look for lines
with EE or WW. They may be clues. Also, somewhere in that file should be
a notice as to which configuration file it's using. Make sure that file
is the same one you're tinkering with.
6)Have you tried the "vga" driver in XF86Config-4 instead of "vesa",
or have you tried dropping the DefaultDepth from 24 to 16?
I have tried all the way.
I'm unsure what "all the way" means. I'd try even dropping down to 8. I
would also try the i810 driver. Also, since this is an integrated
driver, that means it's using system RAM; there may be an option in the
BIOS to up the available video memory; look into that. (Dell had a
series of computers four or five years ago in which a certain BIOS (A03
maybe?) was buggy and didn't correctly report the 8 MB assigned in the
BIOS to the OS; a firmware update solved that for me.)
