Mapping Video BIOS?

I've spent the last couple of days tracking down a problem starting X
on a Dell Inspiron 5100. I've got as far as discovering that the
video BIOS is not being completely mapped: it's 60 kB long, but only
48 kB are being mapped into memory. To make matters worse, the
machine doesn't have a serial port, so I can't apply a kernel debugger
to find out what's going on.
Can anybody point me in the right direction? Where should I be
looking for this? Is this memory mapped permanently, or is it only
during X startup?
