Anything helpful in the E53A-EDA-DB:1.log file?
Mine is just called vaio:1.log
I wonder why yours is different ? Is your hostname E53A-EDA-DB ?
Horrible thought: Are you running a "virtual machine" ?

OK, I got the checkered/ grey / gray screen to go away and it to work by chmod +x /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc

That allows it to work if vncserver is started "locally." But it still gives me a gray screen if I try the "startup" in rc.local.

THis is pretty confusing.
