xorg.conf.d is _in addition_ to xorg.conf, so you can leave you previous
configuration as-is. As for the file not being loaded, the most common
reason for that is that it doesn't have the suffix ".conf".

Anything else is guesswork though, you'd have to provide your actual
configuration for us to figure out why it's not loading.
