Possibly install the vmWare video driver from 
x11-drivers/xf86-video-vmware.  /var/log/Xorg.0.log would show what is 
really happening.  It might be as easy as removing the Device section 
from xorg.conf so it can autodetect the right driver.  This is 
guesswork, since neither the log nor the config file have been shown.
