Doug, good stuff! Although it probably seems like a step backwards at present, it gives us an xorg.conf we can start from and amend (as opposed to the previous one), and the base I was looking for.
One quick question: when you changed the monitor to the generic flat screen, did you also change the resolution to the required 1920x1080 (there is a button right below the Monitor button... apologies, I should have been clearer on this point, but it somehow slipped my mind).
When you do this, you should be asked if you want to use the propriety driver, to which you should say yes.
Either way, do not worry, we shall get you back to the proper format and driver.
Let me know how you fare on this step!
EDIT: You might not be allowed to go up to the required resolution as you are presently using the vesa driver. Do not worry if you cannot, we shall fix this soonest.
Depending on the result of the above - if successful, and if you have the patience - one thing I would really like for comparative reasons, is for you to unplug your Viewpoint monitor, re-insert the Toshiba TV (only) and perform the same steps as you have just done for the monitor; if you get it to work reasonably, post the xorg.conf that result after this.
After the above, once again unplug the Toshiba, re-plug the monitor and restore the xorg.conf (the one you just posted). (Alternatively, feel free to perform 'the steps' again with only the monitor plugged in.
I know this is bothersome - hence the needed patience - though my hope is that this shall provide us with the information we need to stitch one final xorg.conf together!
As for icons, you might be right, I thought after I posted that it could have been your post I was referring to.
I have a hope - maybe vain, time shall tell - that if we get your video sorted out, just maybe your icons will stay in place.
I used Icon Restore myself back in the XP days, and I got to depend on it too. (I also used the Nvidia settings dialog and kind of miss that sort of directness under Linux - but alas, one cannot have it all, and I still find Linux superior once I got it set up).
Anyway, let me know how you get on with the above, if you chose so (and have the patience for it)!
Doug, I just got thinking... just on the off-chance that something goes horribly awry and you are stuck with no graphical interface and just a prompt on start-up, would you know how to get back to where you were?
What I normally do, from said prompt, is simply to delete (rename) the existing xorg.conf and restart. This normally - as a minimum - gets you back into KDE.
As I said... just in case...
