If you upgraded then your xorg.conf file wil still be in tact. However if you run this command it will be replaced.

Under Hardy xorg.conf is a stub file.

This is mine.

cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf
# xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file)
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
# Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
# package.
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following command:
# sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

I've found this too. It makes it difficult to manually edit the file yourself should you need to.

However the command worked for me when I had to reconfigure X :)

Yep it can cut both ways. I got my resolution back using it. It needs a warning.
