You should probably try 'system-config-display --reconfig'.  It may be 
that your current xorg.conf has something not parse-able in it, the 
--reconfig switch starts from scratch.  Worth a try, anyway.  Remember, 
paranoia is a good thing, make a copy of your xorg.conf first!

BTW, this just works with X11's configuration file, it doesn't have any 
dependency on  Gnome or KDE.
