Thank you that worked and as for the complete balck screen I figured out that the screen back light was dimmed and had to turn it up.

I don't understand why is it dimmed as if the screen is turned off?

Can you provide your working config and the broken one created by Xorgautoconfig? I'd like to fix Xortautoconfig so it supports your machine.

What does Xorgautoconfig --dump print?
