I think it was in one of my links...
Google tells me something like  Option "NoDDC" "1" somewhere in xorg.conf
or better:

1. ask google
2. try to understand it
3. try to fix it
4. if it doesn't work, goto 1 until you are about to shoot yourself into the foot
5. ask me again, but give more details.

Well, that doesn't help to fix your problem but otherwise a good attitude!

Good luck,
