 Has anybody responded to your question yet?

 Have you specified the correct horizontal and veritical refresh rates in
your XF86Config file?

 I've had Xfree running quite nicely with a no-name video card with 4 megs
of ram, so you should be able to. Maybe you need to find out more about
your on-board video card... try googling your motherboard for more info.

 In the meantime, have you tried specifying specific info in your
XF86Config file? like:

Section "Screen"
        Identifier "Screen0"
        Device     "Card0"
        Monitor    "Monitor0"
        DefaultDepth 24
        SubSection "Display"
                Viewport  0 0
                Depth     24
                Modes     "1024x768"

 Try different depths... 8, 16, 24
 Modes: 640x480, 800x600, 1024x768

 Good luck!
