You need to be more specific about the problems you are encountering.
What is the specific error you get when you try to launch X? What
version of X are you running? I had an Inspiron 4000(?) running fine
with X v3 a little over a year ago. The only specific I can remember is
that I had to set the mouse protocol to "BusMouse" in order to get the
touchpad to work properly. If you are using X version 4 you could try
to generate a skeleton config file using `XFree86 -configure`.
