Edit xorg.conf and add the monitor? May reside in /etc/X11...

I don't know anything about cellphones but that`s the place where the x system will look for screens.

Option 1: Specify nomodeset on the kernel line when you boot Squeeze. This will force Xorg to use the vesa driver, which may work betterthan whatever driver your system is trying to use.

Option 2: Run Xorg -configure (as root) to create the file If there were errors reported, you will probably need to edit this file before copying or moving it to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.
