xorg.0.log no screens found and I cant figure out why


I am running FC10. When I run without an xorg.conf file and the projector is on X starts with no problem. Without xorg.conf and Projector is off X fails. With an xorg.conf and projector off X fails as well. Below is the end of my Xorg.0.log in addition to my xorg.conf. Any help is appreciated I would like to be able to boot into x without having the projector on.

Well from what I can understand, this seems pretty reasonable, no? you have 3 outputs on the system and no clear way to know which one is supposed to be used? There are plenty of bug reports that sound similar to this, but it doesn't sound like an issue relevant to a bug. There is an Xorg.conf option, DevicePresence which appears to allow you to force a device to exist, but whether you'll stumble later on trying to get modelines and such, I couldn't say.

Is there a way to get an edid.bin file without the nvidia tools? I used monitor-edid, but it does only appears to be able to genreate a text file.

A question ,you are wondering about a nvidia tool but from your xorg.conf you have installed a integrated "intel " chip set and NO 3d card ?
but the intel driver is throwing an error "(EE) intel(0): No valid modes."
what is the output of
Code:
lspci | grep VGA

Here it is lspci | grep VGA

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Eaglelake Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03)

It works in aoutoconfig mode when I delete the xorg.conf file and boot with the projector on.

[code]
Section "Monitor"
-options
-options
-options
EndSection

Section "Screen"
-options
-options
-options
EndSection
[code]
for the projector

basically you are using a two screen setup
i only use a one screen setup
have you ran "system-config-display" and set up a duel head
and
run "gnome-display-properties" and checking " mirror screens"
