display problem in centos


Hi

I have a Sony VGN-SZ770N. It has two STAMINA and SPEED modes. I have installed windows VISTA and CENTOS-5.6 when it was on SPEED mode. VISTA works well with both modes. But in STAMINA mode CENTOS-5.6 can not start X-SERVER on neither card0 and/or card1. To resolve the problem I did the followings:

1) yum install x-org-x11-drv-i810
2) system config-display --reconfig –set-drive=intel_drv --set-depth=24
3) system config-display


But the problem resist and I can just enter command mode of CENTOS. After the 3rd step, so system config-display, I receive the following messages:

Couldn’t start X server on card0
Couldn’t start X server on card1
Couldn’t start X server with old config, trying with a fresh configuration
Couldn’t start X server on card0
Couldn’t start X server on card1



I mention that I can not use SPEED mode because of physical damage to this mode (In SPEED mode monitor show vertical lines and dotted screen and just STAMINA mode show a clear screen). My card is under a Mobile Intel 965 Express chipset family.
So how can I solve the problem???????????



I have attached the xorg.conf created by system config-display; Xorg.setup.log and Xorg.0.log as follows

1) xorg.conf conent:

CentOS 5.6 ??
that is unsupported and has been for a few years
the current and only supported version of the OLDER 5 series is CentOS 5.9
With CentOS 6.4 as the current version

the older RHEL/CentOS 5 series is starting to show it's age and lack of support for new hardware
from the sony page
http://store.sony.com/p/VGN-SZ770N/C...specifications
the older rhel/cent did not support this
--- Technology : Hybrid Graphics System ---

installing a old SERVER grade operating system on a laptop is not relay a great idea

rhel will mostly work mostly well on most "laptops" , but not on all of them
common issues are
no mouse pad
no sound
no mouse buttons
bad graphics
-- some unfixable problems --
no graphics , text only

RHEL5 was never designed to be used on a laptop

if you MUST use the older rhel/cent os 5
install the current CentOS 5.9
and install it on a desktop

If you must stay in the RHEL "family" of OperatingSystems
have a look at Fedora 19
-- but be warned fedora is a "Research and Development " distro , and may not always work as expected

or CentOS 6.4 , but centos 6 still might not support the "Hybrid Graphics System" that are on some laptops
