Sorry to read that you are still having problems.

Interestingly I don't even have a xorg.conf file as my hardware simply doesn't require one.

Hope you get it figured out soon.

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO IT WORKED!!! Thanks Nikosis and everyone else. It's was hard to see the spacing in terminal and I didn't have them right. Had to add a couple.
