Xorg issues with Toshiba

Good day.

I have a Toshiba laptop and I am having problems with X configuration. The automatic (PCBSD 7 beta) utility for X configuration was failing. I then booted into single user mode disabled that feature (edited /etc/ttys). I kept having problems even with Xorg -config and Xorg -configure. When I run Xorg -config xorg.conf.new
 the usual criss-cross X screen comes up, however when I kill it with Ctrl-Alt-Backspace instead of getting back to the command line, I get a blank screen. And I can't do anything, switch terminals, or reboot. /var/log/X~.log doesn't help.

Any idea?
