It may depend on customizations of the distro you use, but I have found that
any changes you wish to make to video via xorg.conf.d/ require you connect
device, monitor and screen via their identifiers. Look at

Also remember when troubleshooting X video that /var/log/Xorg.#.log is your
friend. It's probably telling you what's wrong.
