Exclamation PROBLEM!-Slackware10.1/Xorg on Dell Laptop video:intel Extreme Graphics 2 for mobile


I can boot and login as root perfectly, but when I try to enter on X( startx )
I have this Errors:

(EE) VESA(0): No matching modes
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have usable config

Fatal server ERROR:
no screens found

After that, i tried editing Xorg.conf but I am just a newbie so.. i couldn´t do nothing.
I tried to change HorizSync to 60 because the freq of the LCD is 60Hz but it didn´t worked the same.
Here is some of the Xorg.conf file (it´s just this because i had to copy them on a paper..ugh)

Ok, i tried that and then when i replaced my old xorg.conf with the new one i realised that the new one was MUCH MUCH smaller (and when X runs with it it get a lot of parsing errors and font missing)
.. it was already done.. to undo the changes i replaced it back with xorg.conf-vesa (they seemed to be the same file with small changes)
to set this new xorg.conf i used:
xorgcfg -textmode

It enters on an pretty config form, there i found my Video Card and it´s driver.
The problem is that, now, the X is still not working, now it gets stuck in a black screen.. no way to get out, just rebooting at the power buttom.
If anyone knows the solution.. please help!!
