Hangs on Nvidia screen with dual monitor
 
Just installed a GeForce 8600GT, and updated the drivers. When trying to log in after setting the dual monitors the screen hangs at the Nvidia "splash" screen. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. The logs show:
Code:

According to your bug report, you're not using the nvidia X driver.

Re: Hangs on Nvidia screen with dual monitor
 
I had been trying with and without the nvidia drivers. I edited the xorg.conf file by hand this time and was going to do a bug report, but it is now working. I guess something in the xorg.conf was wrong before. I have added my xorg.conf below incase it helps anyone in the future. Thanks for your help.
