Seems that your board has some odd SDVO setup with a presence of the
devices for SDVOB & SDVOC but no capabilities for them, and the driver
doesn't deal well with this.

Try adding this to your xorg.conf file which essentially disables those

Section "Monitor"
	Identifier "Unknown-1"
	Option "Ignore"

Section "Monitor"
	Identifier "Unknown-2"
	Option "Ignore"
