Can you get to the graphical desktop at all? Does it just not work with TV out? Or does it not even work with a computer monitor?
If you can't get to the desktop at all, then try booting the Ubuntu live CD and running the option to fix the display. It is called xfix
fix video (or something like that).
In the future, if you want to try replacing xorg.conf (or any other configuration file) just rename it xorg.conf.bak. This way you can easily replace the new xorg.conf with the original xorg.conf.bak if something goes wrong.
And welcome to the LQ forums!
