For the monitor section.  Hmm.  My workstation has something like this:

Section "Monitor"
        Identifier      "Monitor1"
        Option          "Position"      "0 0"

Section "Monitor"
        Identifier      "Monitor2"
        Option          "RightOf"       "Monitor1"

Section "Device"
        Identifier      "MyDevice3"
        Driver          "intel"
        Option          "Monitor-HDMI1" "Monitor1"
        Option          "Monitor-HDMI2" "Monitor2"

Section "Screen"
        Identifier      "MyScreenX"
#       Device          "MyDevice1"
#       Device          "MyDevice2"
        Device          "MyDevice3"
        SubSection      "Display"
                Virtual 3840 1080

Obviously would be different for your box, you could try specifying
'Monitor-LVDS1' for the monitor connection option in the device spec.

It may also be useful to attach an external monitor to the laptop if it has
an external monitor port and see if X can detect that, and specify it in
the device section as well and/or play with xrandr for the external monitor
port as well.
