did you check the log files in /var/log?

did you check that the values in XF86Config are correct?

well, that could certainly cause problems it might be XF86Config-4 instead. or, if you're running xorg, it will be xorg.conf

if not, there is a setup program to generate a XF86Config file... named xf86cfg or xf86config or something similar to that, can't remember exactly - run a find or locate on your system to see if you have that, or search LQ...
