You didn't list your video card.

Most of the time, you don't need an xorg.conf anymore, just insure the
proper drivers are installed e.g. video card and X should autodetect and use
highest available settings.

Also sometimes on a bad crash multiple fsck's are required to get UFS back
in a consistent state.
