How Can I reset xserver xorg to default settings to try and avoid crash and log out after log in?

While logged out of the GUI, CTRL-ALT-F3 into shell then

   mv /etc/X11/Xorg.conf /tmp

CTRL-ALT-F7 to get back to the GUI and login.  Fedora will create a new 
Xorg.conf on the fly.

If that doesn't work, move the file back from /tmp
