UseDummyXServer yes

the UseDummyXServer should provide you with an working video card/display
after boot.

on the acpi list, some people also mentioned you should confirm, that your
problem is a problem with the video card and _not_ a swichted off backlight..
you can do this by using a good/bright spotlight.

about your questions regarding video card&ram.. from your log:
