Hi, can you tell us exactly which is your Radeon video card model?
Radeon 9200?
lspci command could help, post here the output.

You can try to reconfigure xorg with the command

sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

I Haven't been able to generate an xorg.conf that works.

The part I'm most confused about from the log :

(EE) RADEON(0): No valid modes.

how do I find out what to change in my display settings?

Try to delete the xorg.conf (backup it). Normally, the xserver should find its way without it now (your keyboard will be considered as QWERTY)

This produced the same output.

I also tried using VESA and VGA, and ended up with the same
