Default X windows locks when trying to log out.

After successfully configuring nvidia driver, I started to tinker with TV out. As a result, when I try to log out of X windows, it locks up and I'm forced to do a hard reboot. I have tried to restore my system to the condition before things deteriorated, but have odviously missed something.

Curiously, if I use my TV as the primary display, I can load X windows and log out without any difficulties, however, If I try using my CRT moniter, X will lock up.

I have disabled acpi in the kernel and BIOS and removed apm for the kernel but to no effect.

I have also included my kernel configuration file, my XF86config and XFree86.0.log. Any help would be great.

Thanks

Default well..

I most certainly feel like an idiot right now.. after RTFM, I discovered the one and only thing I didn't do to restore my computer to its original state... remove the tv-out cable. This aparently solved the issue. For those who have the same difficulty and were too lazy to read the posts (like myself) look here:
