The pre R600 cards (which includes your X700) are no longer supported by the
fglrx driver. When updating you probably moved from an older version of
fglrx that still supported your card to a more recent version without
Try removing fglrx altogether, and install the xf86-video-ati driver (and
mesa, if you want 3D) instead. With a recent X server, you should also
remove your xorg.conf. The X server should detect your card correctly and
load the appropriate graphics driver automatically. Your default keyboard
layout setting is probably best handled by an appropriate entry in a modular
settings file in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d.
