Of sorts....Try this. Set up so your xserver does NOT start up at boot.
This will give you a runlevel 6 session with no display manager (ie, you
will see a black tty1 login prompt.
Login, then, run startx.
The xserver will load and you will be left at your messed up screen. Use
CRTL-ALT-F1 to switch back to tty1.
You will see the messages put out by/from xorg.conf as it starts up..

Error: failed to load module via.....
Now *why* that is happening, I have NO idea. I only know that it does for
me, and this is how to see those errors.......
