Here is the output of pciconf -lv (Video Driver)

none3 at pci1:5:0: class=0x030000 card=0x006b103c chip=0x58351002 rev=0x00
vendor = 'ATI Technologies Inc'
device = 'Mobility Radeon 9100 IGP (RS300M AGP)'
class = display
subclass = VGA

I tried bunch of things in my xorg.conf (like copying xorg.conf from ubuntu
install which i posted earlier) and also I tried following monitor section

Section "Monitor"
        Identifier   "Monitor0"
        VendorName   "Monitor Vendor"
        ModelName    "Monitor Model"
        HorizSync    31.5-48.5
        VertRefresh  40-70

Two things that would really help:

-The video card and monitor sections of your xorg.conf file.
-More info about your video card (maker, model, etc). This can be found
using pciconf -lv. A snippet would do nicely (not a whole list of all
the devices in your PC that are PCI related.

Thanks :).
