Slot:    01:00.0
Class:    VGA compatible controller [0300]
Vendor:    Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] [1039]
Device:    315PRO PCI/AGP VGA Display Adapter [0325]
SVendor:    Elitegroup Computer Systems [1019]
SDevice:    Device [0c26]

I tried failsafe. Then I tried several boot parameters such as: nomodeset,
"i915.nomodeset", "vga=771" and others that I latter noticed that failsafe
already used. Nevertheless, the only way I could boot was with the
"single" boot parameter in failsafe mode.

I then tried to startx but had the same problem on root. On user luther, I
ran startx without response.
