    I have verified everything to be as you instructed. I cut and pasted your code directly from the web page. I went into the log file to see a more descriptive error message:

    Add code for Keyboard and Mouse too.
    Add InputDevice "Configured Mouse" in last section.
    Code:
    Section "InputDevice"
    	Identifier	"Generic Keyboard"
    	Driver		"kbd"
    	Option		"CoreKeyboard"
    	Option		"XkbRules"	"xorg"
    	Option		"XkbModel"	"pc105"
    	Option		"XkbLayout"	"us"
    EndSection
    
    Section "InputDevice"
    	Identifier	"Configured Mouse"
    	Driver		"mouse"
    	Option		"CorePointer"
    	Option		"Device"		"/dev/input/mice"
    	Option		"Protocol"		"ImPS/2"
    	Option		"ZAxisMapping"		"4 5"
    	Option		"Emulate3Buttons"	"true"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Device"
    	Identifier	"Generic Card"
    	Driver		"vesa"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Monitor"
    	Identifier	"Generic Monitor"
    	Option		"DPMS"
    	HorizSync	30-71
    	VertRefresh	50-160
    EndSection
    
    Section "Screen"
    	Identifier	"Default Screen"
    	Device		"Generic Card"
    	Monitor		"Generic Monitor"
    	DefaultDepth	24
    	SubSection "Display"
    		Depth		24
    		Modes		"1280x1024" "1024x768" 
    	EndSubSection
    EndSection
    
    Section "ServerLayout"
    	Identifier	        "Default Layout"
    	Screen		"Default Screen"
    	InputDevice	"Generic Keyboard"
    	InputDevice	"Configured Mouse"
    EndSection
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Now I boot up normally and the display appears to be working now. I have opened several applications at the same time and have resized windows and moved them across other windows. I can see the back windows being refreshed over the part where the top window moved across.

    I really appreciate your help with this. Is there any documentation available that would give the proper settings for xorg.conf for different hardware? I would like to learn how to resolve such issues in case I install Linux on another PC.
