    Extra folders I just double checked Computer is on Game 5 but plug a bit loose. Green is gone but nothing else improve. I'm going to reboot considering the loose plug...it may help us out.
    No go. I just learned that switching inputs returns my screen to green.

    Half you, half me

    I uploaded a file that didn't decompress properly.

    First delete both copies of xorg.conf.tar.gz that you've already downloaded, then download the one attached to this message.

    Then (and don't forget this time ;)):

    tar -xzf /home/daniel/Downloads/xorg.conf.tar.gz

    Then:
    sudo cp /home/daniel/Downloads/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf


    Then reboot and tell me what luck. I'm off to the gym for an hour - will check in between sets.

    OK, exercise done. Let's try that again

    I've attached the file this time. I promise. I've checked and everything.

    First delete both copies of xorg.conf.tar.gz that you've already downloaded, then download the one attached to this message.

    Then (and don't forget this time ;)):

    tar -xzf /home/daniel/Downloads/xorg.conf.tar.gz

    Then:
    sudo cp /home/daniel/Downloads/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf

    Then reboot and tell me what happens.

    OK, having thought through your screenshot, the following should work:

    sudo cp /home/daniel/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf

    If it does, then reboot and let me know the outcome.
