Ok, so there is a working system and connection.

Question 1: is X running?
Question 2: if X is not running, or allegedly running, I would bring the
system to
                  init 3, then, as root, run startx. *That* tends to give you
                  more useful info than just trying to figure out what
                  /var/log/Xorg.0.log tells you.
