No screens found, SuSE 8.1

Hello, I've been getting the 'No screens found error when trying to run X with my ATi All In Wonder 7500 and SuSE 8.1 Pro.

I get the following error when trying to run startx:

(EE) RADEON(0): No valid mode found for this DFP/LCD
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a useable configuration.

Fatal server error:
no screens found

I have checked that the specified vsync and hsync figures in XF86Config are within my moniters specs, but it still doesn't work.

Any ideas?

Thanks for the tip, I ran it, checked out the log, and found that it was mad because I am using a CRT moniter on a DVI port. All I had to do was add the line under device:

Option "crt_screen"

And it worked marvellously!
