What error(s) does X report? Try running "startx 2> errorlog".

did you use xf86config? - try with a monitor with a lower frequency - sounds like your monitor cant handle the resolution and or Hz

An answer and two suggestions. The refresh rate that you are specifying is too high, thus give a lower refresh during xf86config (on horizontal a safe choice is probably  6  31.5 - 48.5; Non-Interlaced SVGA, 1024x768 @ 60 Hz, 800x600 @ 72 Hz for vertical a safe choice is probably 3  50-100). Also after specifying this in the config try both 1)Starting with a different pixel depth (i.e. startx -- -bpp 16 or -bpp 32 or -bpp 24) or 2) change the resolution by typing ctrl-alt-+ or ctrl-alt-- (minus and plus signs). Good Luck :)
