Ok, have you set your graphics card and monitor correctly? Could you tell us what graphics adapter/chip, monitor and mouse you have? Then we might have an easier time helping you get the right settings.

That means that you have chosen the wrong graphics adapter in XFdrake, so you need to determin what you do have. A help there is the output from
lspci -v
or
lspcidrake
