And the screen you got was nothing more than a black screen with a mouse pointer?

If the only problem, now, is that you cannot use the mouse, chances are you merely need to try another driver. But, from the description you give me, I still cannot tell whether you are still experiencing graphical problems or whether X is actually loading properly.

so... does X work now? apart from the cordless mouse?

if you want a higher resolution, while running X, try running (in a terminal) xrandr. It'll list possible resolutions.

both cordless mouse and internet will require drivers... if you post the manufacturer and model of these devices i might be able to find such drivers.
