Ok, I'm being stupid, as usual, first of all, show me: inxi -bxx

I need to see this system completely.

I really need to start getting all data before proceeding with support issues, in the future, I'll always ask for inxi, xorg.conf, and Xorg.0.log and lspci -nn before I do anything else.

I forgot that because really except for mint and ubuntu users, sgfxi is pretty smooth and problem free in terms of support, not always, but usually, so I need to remove all variables before I start trying to do a fresh support case.

To make support easier, I've added something I should have done years ago, a debugger data collector.

Easy to run it, update sgfxi first of course so you have it:
:: Code ::
sgfxi --debugger


that creates a gz file of all the data I need.

Your case made me realize that I have to have an all in one easy to use data collector to avoid going through step by step support, makes it easier for everyone.

With this I may finally be able to track down a few oddities with inxi reporting xorg driver failures, and the causes of xorg failing to start, though it's almost always: screen not found, which isn't that informative, except it tells us that xorg was looking in the wrong place for some reason.
