I have a laptop with a 2nd monitor (via a HDMI output with my nvidia graphic card). I think I messed up the xorg.conf file while configuring the 2nd monitor with nvidia x server because when I restarted the PC, the built-in display is not detected anymore. I checked the backup file and it's empty.

sudo lshw -C display

I think that this thread may help you. I don't know if this will re-detect your display but at least it will restore the config files to default.
