This is not necessarily the graphic card, no usable screens found can
result from other errors also and is misleading.

If you can post the file /var/log/XFree86.0.log this is the log file
for starting X and it may show where the error is. Also post
~/.xsession-errors if it exists.

One other thing, to rule out a problem that sometimes appears and
results with this error, see that you have a link /dev/mouse, if not
then as root do
ln -s psaux /dev/mouse
and see if that helps.
