It might, but there is no promise that it will. When you install xorg it will do its best to guess what you need, but it doesn't always get it right. You're welcome to take a shot, but you're better off just biting the bullet and figuring out the options in the file and fix it youself.

Or run "xorgconfig" to regenerate your configuration (kill X first, or switch to a VT using ctrl-alt-F1)
