    It might be helpful if you include the current kernel and distribution you are using along with errors, useing a terminal give results of.
    egrep '^\((EE|WW)\)' /var/log/Xorg.0.log
    another helpful thing is when you have a working xorg.conf make a backup of it to something like xorg.conf.bak then you can get back to
    a working copy without too much trouble.. good luck.
