Does that file exist?

Could you post your /etc/X11/xorg.conf?

Are there any interesting-looking error messages in /var/log/Xorg.0.log?



Contents of file xorg.conf is below.
There does not seem to be anything of interest in the log.
The driver file does exist, is this something I can point the xorg.conf at?

I am afraid I have to leave this problem until Monday. Thank you very much
for your help to date. I will read anything you might post back on Monday
