    Execute this
    Code:
    system-config-display --reconfig
    It will generate new xorg.conf file.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    If there isn't any specifically unusual configuration required for your system you can just try renaming your xorg.conf to xorg.conf.old. X can actually run without a config file now. I had forgotten that and surprised myself by doing just that at the weekend

    Yes. Wrong settings in xorg.conf file creates problems. If you remove xorg.conf file, X Server will try to configure everything using default settings.
