Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Configured Monitor"

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Monitor "Configured Monitor"
Device "Configured Video Device"

xorg.conf2 and xorg.conf3 look like the real deal, though.
BUT IF I try and make either of them straight ahead xorg.conf. by doing a copy/paste and re-boot .. get no display and have to run a repair boot and re-install the 96 driver.

again, the equipment:
Nvidia 5500 card
HP LP2465 Cinema display.
ATTEMPTING to use 8.10

as an added note .. I have three computers I updated and NONE will rotate now, whereas ALL rotated using Gutsy and the drivers therein. So it IS the driver/kernel issue.
Your xorg is very modest Try to use commands:
sudo dexconf
to restore your xorg and
sudo nvidia-xconfig
to create the new xorg.
