Can I simply re-run the Netbook Installer RC3 and check the GMA thing? Will that break the current installation?

You can do that. Run Netbook Installer again and check the old gma kexts file box. Reboot with the Dell Mini already connected to the external monitor and it should work.
Keep in mind that installing the old gma kexts means that ichat video will crash and that some screensavers wont work. You can always run Netbook Installer again with the old gma kexts box unchecked to fix that.

Video/VGA out problem - 10-25-2009, 01:52 AM
I was having this same issue in Leopard so maybe same fix works for SL without using old mirror kexts. Run a program called MirrorDisplays (Fabin Caas) which lets you set mirroring off without the terminal. The problem with using terminal for this of course is that you can't read what you are typing with an external display attached and all the vertical lines garbage etc.
After running app, connect Mini to a projector or monitor via VGA. Press ALT and SPACE, (you will still see the vertical lines), and type "-off" (you will not see any type on the screen) and lines should disappear on mini. With projector still attached, go to Display in Systems Preferences, select "Gather Windows" and select a reasonable resolution for your projector - presto the projector should come on perfectly. T
The problem may be in the video kexts/mirroring and this can be reset with the MirrorDisplay application. Hope this helps.
