i ran the X command and it seemed to make my screen black and auto configure my stuff.
Which didn't do anything.
I still don't know what driver I am using or where I can make changes to that information.
AKA it runs like ass
Thanks though,.

/etc/X11/xorg.conf is where to edit BUT do you know if you need another driver? If so is it installed or do you need to install it? Particularly important if you have nvidia or ati video.

when you run 'Xorg -configure :1', it creates a default config file xorg.conf.new (or similar) in the current directory.

Edit that and copy it to /etc/xorg.conf, then restart Xserver (ctrl-alt-backspace)

You can see what modules the X server loads by looking at the

LoadModule statements in /var/log/Xorg.0.log

Just note that there will be many of those but only one is the actual video driver
the rest will be DRI, fb, freetype and so on
