Now, as Nate and Manuel suggest, try the 'Option "sw_cursor"'. Leave all
your other lines in that section as they are, they are for Manuels
board. He just posted the whole Section, so you can see WHERE to insert:

Section "Device"
Identifier  "Elsa Winner T3D"
VendorName  "Unknown"
BoardName   "Unknown"
VideoRam    8192
ChipId      0x8a10
Option      "sw_cursor"				<---
# Insert Clocks lines here if appropriate

You may also try, what happens, when you change 
>    DefaultColorDepth 8
in your Screens Section to 15 or 16.
