In single user mode try to let Xorg to do the configuration:

# Xorg -configure

This will write /root/xorg.conf.new
Try it:

# Xorg -config /root/xorg.conf.new

This method usually gives a reasonably good configuration file to edit and
tweak. If Xorg fails you should at least get some error messages to point you
to the right direction.
