Also check if you have the /etc/x11/xorg.conf -- root 644. Dont keep another xorg.conf in the /home/user directory so its using the one from /etc/x11 for sure.
Dont have ~/.Xresources and ~/.Xmodmap in the home directory. Check .xinitrc if it is in /root. If it is there and it works copy it over to the /home/user, care for permissions or make it 777. Watch for /usr/local/lib/X11/xinit -- it will use this when you have no .xinitrc in the /home/user or permission is set wrong! Such troubles I solve best when I look over it the next day. Usually I find it in two minutes then and wonder how I can have not seen such an obvious mistake..
