Try /bin/lspci, and look at how the kernel recognizes your chipset.
Then find out your monitor specs (manual, online) and dpkg-reconfigure
xserver-xfree86. Choose the 'advanced' option under monitor, and feed it
the real specs.  Also make sure you are using the right driver.  The
only other thing I notice in the log is that it's failing to find the
module xie - is it actually not there?  find or locate to see if you
actually are missing this module, in which case, I'd say something else
might be broken in your install.

Kent's Heuristic:
	Look for it first where you'd most like to find it.
