I had a similar problem, and got this reply:

With the newer X, sometimes the file /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 is read instead. Do you have that file?

# Configuring X
Linux Hardware Compatibility HOWTO - video cards
The Linux XFree86 HOWTO
Common X configuring tools:
Debian - dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86
Mandrake - XFdrake
Redhat 7.3 down - the setup utility leads to several config tools
Redhat 7.3 up - redhat-config-xfree86
You may have these tools:
XFree86 -configure
XFree86 -configure worked for me (as root) But i have Slack so you might want to try redhat-config-xfree86

All I have is "XFree86 -configure", but that's what I ran originally that got me into this mess : )

If your gui is working try hitting Control and plus or minus to adjust screen res. Also what you can do is type in XF86Config and this will guide you through everything in X
