/var/log/Xorg.0.log should show where X is going wrong. X is usually
pretty wordy about what it's doing.
If it's a refresh rate problem, setting it to 60 Hz should work without
any visible flicker on the LCD.
Some of those model of Satellite appear to have come with a 1024x768
screen, so that's worth trying also.
