After you try this, if it doesn't work, Here is a trick I do, I go 
into /etc/X11 you should see files xorg.conf~, xorg.conf.1, xorg.conf.2 etc, 
etc. rename your xorg.conf to one of the files with a number, usually 1 will 
do, then restart your xserver, if that don't work try another. the lower 
numbers are the most recent.

When I do this, I always take the xorg.conf and rename it xorg.conf.bak and 
then rename one of the other xorg.conf.1 or 2 etc etc files to xorg.conf. 
Once you find the one that was working, back it up ie: cp xorg.conf
