Default Re: Dell XPS-17 702 GT 550M init config xorg.conf help needed, blank screen

Hopefully the coming work week will bring some good knowledgeable help.
In the mean time here is what I can do.
swap in orig xorg.conf I can start x and use the internal laptop display using vesa driver.
init 3 will not close x and I have to pkill x.
I can switch over to my xorg.conf.extok file. Then I can start x and get video on my external hdmi connected monitor. x still hangs closing and needs pkill x.

I think I need an intel driver section for the optimus onboard video at PCI:0:2:0 and another Display section.
I am not sure why the internal monitor is not discovered when the ext hdmi monitor is disconnected.
Files attached.
