XF86Config is a (text) file for your X configuration. It's at:
/etc/X11/XF86Config - copy that file into a mail and post it.
At a command prompt (without X already running) type (exactly):
X > xerrors.txt 2>&1
and press enter.
When that's finished, you should have a file in your current working
directory called xerrors.txt. Mail that to. That'll tell us what X is
getting from your configuration file, and what it's 'auto probing' for
Make sure you read:
This explains all about XF86Config and other stuff that you need to know
about before trying to get X running.
