Look for the file XF86Config or XF86Config-4 under the directory /etc/X11/ and post the contents of it here.

Post the relevant sections, the sections pertaining to Screen would come to mind, and maybe graphics card.

Or, you can upload the file to my ftp and post a link here

ftp://masterc.no-ip.org and here is a username and pass:

USER: CCSpoon
PASS: s2000

It's not always up, but I will leave it up for a couple days so people can see your file.

The link should look something like:
ftp://CCSpoon:s2000@masterc.no-ip.org/XF86Config-4 (If you click this, and there is no file XF86Config-4 (which currently there isn't), then it will return an error, so edit that portion)

Have you tried running XF86Config as root? And gone through the setup completely and accurately that way?

No ftp? Is it down?
