I'm open to best guesses and even wild guesses at this point. I removed
the second Videocard device section. UNfortunately no change. 

Here's the latest.
http://www.obrien-pifer.com/xorg.conf
http://www.obrien-pifer.com/Xorg.0.log

The log says the only valid resolutions are 640x480 up to 1280x800,
which is true for the laptop display, but the hardware certainly
supports higher res on the external connection. 

Here's another oddity. If I'm not in X I can hit Fn-F4 and turn the
laptop's display off so the screen is only on the external display. As
soon as I startx the laptop display comes back on, so both are on, and
Fn-F4 does nothing. 

Thanks,
James
