You can try the Suse utility SaX2, or the xorg utilities xorgcfg or xorgconfig, to create a new xorg.conf.

Thank you for your advice
i tried xorgcfg, it says its not a right command
so i tried xorgconfig, and it shows the starting page about creating basic xorg file
but i was not sure if that was the right one so leaving a reply to confirm

is that wut im supposed to get? and what if i dont know the model of my lcd monitor?
cuz this is a laptop, and i remember the company of lcd monitor was different from the laptop company...

by the way
im using toshiba satellite a105-4344 T5500 CPU
and graphics card is intel 945 GM i think...

If you cannot use SaX2 that will probe your hardware and provide the most suitable xorg.conf, then go with xorgconfig. There in no problem if you don't know the manufacturer of the display as far as you know its specs. Just create a basic xorg.conf and then change it to suit your needs.
Also this might give you a hint.

xorgconfig is okay but it will break stuff if you change it without knowing your hardware. I used this in Gentoo and, luckily, a buddy fixed it for me. xorgconfig is kind of crappy so if you have something that will create a xorg.conf and actually knows what hardware you have then use that for sure.
