What is your video card? If you provide that information, someone on this list 
can advice as to which driver you should use. Most video cards work with vesa 
driver but the performance could be sub-optimal.

Install the package xserver-xorg-video-all and configure X using

dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

most likely dpkg-reconfigure will pick the right driver for you. If it does 
not pick the right driver then that would be a bug in dpkg-reconfigure.
