error in your config file. it's usually in /etc/X11/XF86config(-4). be sure to have the right driver & settings there. have a look into your XFree86.xx.log in /var/log/ to get a hint what's wrong. read the manpages for XFree and your card.
if you can't get it going send in errormessages fromyour logfiles and a "lspci -vv".
