You need to check and see if X set up your monitor correctly. You all so need to check and see if you have a screen section to your XF86Config file.

Look in /etc/X11/XF86Config
It could possibly be /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 (not sure if they did this in the older distros)

Make sure you have something that looks similar to this with just the resolutions and color depths that your screen is compatible with.

Code:
Section "Screen"
        Identifier "Screen0"
        Device     "Card0"
        Monitor    "Monitor0"
        DefaultDepth      8
        DefaultFbBpp     24 
        SubSection "Display"
                Depth     1
                Modes     "1280x1024"
        EndSubSection
        SubSection "Display"
                Depth     4
                Modes     "1280x1024"
        EndSubSection
        SubSection "Display"
                Depth     8
                Modes     "1280x1024"
        EndSubSection
        SubSection "Display"
                Depth     15
                Modes     "1280x1024"
        EndSubSection
        SubSection "Display"
                Depth     16
                Modes     "1280x1024" "1152x864"
        EndSubSection
        SubSection "Display"
                Depth     24
                Modes     "1280x1024" "1152x864" "1024x768"
        EndSubSection
EndSection
If you do not have this screen section you need to figure out what your monitor supports and add it to the botten or just directly after your Section "Monitor".

kreadconfig: error in loading shared libraries
libart_lgpl_2.so.2: ELF file class not __ELF_WORDSIZE-bit
ksplash: error in loading shared libraries
libart_lgpl_2.so.2: ELF file class not __ELF_WORDSIZE-bit
kdeinit: error in loading shared libraries
libart_lgpl_2.so.2: ELF file class not __ELF_WORDSIZE-bit
startkde: Could not start kdeinit. Check your installation.
Error: Can't open display:
startkde: Shutting down...
/opt/kde/bin/startkde: artsshell: command not found
startkde: Running shutdown scripts...
kde-config: error in loading shared libraries
libart_lgpl_2.so.2: ELF file class not __ELF_WORDSIZE-bit
