OK. Then we should make it by the book ;) Last time I did it about
a decade ago and forgot a pattern.
1. run Xorg -configure (preferably as root)
it should create xorg.conf.new in current directory
2. edit it - in 'Section "Screen"' replace all Subsections "Display"
3. Check "Device" Section, maybe a valid driver already was detected?
4. Copy new config to /etc/X11/xorg.conf a try again.
In past that pattern work for me for plenty of strange setups, even
