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..
