[SOLVED] X display scrambled even after reboot


I messed up my PC somehow by playing with the following command:
Code:
gnome-screensaver-command --lock
in /etc/acpi/lid.sh.

After adding sounds on lid open/close by adding mplayer commands to my lid.sh, the lock session on lid close didn't seem to work anymore.

So I tried adding in the "gnome-screensaver-command --lock" command which worked fine from the command-line to lock the session.

After closing+opening the lid however, I now had an unlocked session, but with a very dark display and I couldn't change the luminosity by using the corresponding laptop buttons.

So I just rebooted, but unfortunately now I have a scrambled X display:
-Globally the image seems to be offset to the left by about 2 cm with the leftmost part reappearing on the right.
-Additionally, it keeps moving some lines so that it looks scrambled.
This problem persists even after several reboots.
What can I do to solve this?

edit:
hardware:
ATI Radeon IGP 345M
Compaq Presario 2500

re-edit:
Note:
I already switched back lid.sh to how it was originally of course and the lock screen works again.
However, it remains scrambled whatever I do. I even tried using an old xorg.conf backup I had and reconfiguring the xserver.

Nothing seems to help. I messed up my PC somehow by playing with the following command:

Note:
Maybe I'm wrong and the problem is related to the latest Xorg update for Gutsy:

How can I revert back to the old version?

Probably to obvious but how about re-configuring X? There is at least one program to do this. Is it 'Xconfigurator'?

I already tried reconfiguring X using "sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg".
I even tried older xorg.conf backups I had.

It didn't work.

However, I discovered something interesting:
The display works right on an external monitor.

I'm pretty sure now that the problem was caused by a gutsy update and has nothing to with me playing around in lid.sh.

Things I found that seem related to my problem:
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=526947
http://blogs.sun.com/richb/entry/lat...y_updates_blew

The Ferrari 3400 laptop mentioned in the article uses an ATI MOBILITY™ RADEON™ 9700 according to what I found on the web.

So it clearly seems like some ATI driver issue.

Unfortunately, I have no idea how to fix something like that, especially given that I can't even find my ATI Radeon IGP 345M on the ATI website...

Any ideas?

Problem the picture doesn't take up whole screen and missing bit a bit of the picture duplicated? I remember having this problem after trying to get the thing to give a wide aspect ratio for a wide screen monitor. But if that were it you'd expect it to work when you put in other xorg.conf or reconfigure. You sure you're putting this file in the right place? /etc/X11/xorg.conf - from memory but don't take my word for it.

No expert but would have thought error likely to be in screen section of file. Here's a specimen file, from http://www.arl.wustl.edu/~mgeorg/lin...xorg.conf.html . Of course be carefull, the wrong horiz refresh can still fry the molnitor, I think.
