I really know that I've come so far only thanks to you and I really thank you so much for that. I also know that without you I will not be able to achieve my target.

Maybe this picture will be helpful https://imgur.com/a/VUq5N7k - https://postimg.cc/image/4cv84f0t3/

Content of file Xorg.0.log - maybe it will helpful https://pastebin.com/EiEKudQ8

EDIT:

I tried added this text

Section "Monitor"
   Identifier "<default monitor>"
   Option "Rotate" "left"
EndSection

to 10-rotate-left.conf


I changed "<defaultmonitor>" to "<default monitor>" 

Unfortunately, it did not help

You have done , what ever posible from your side . You cannot help , if the geode driver itself is buggy. It is already mentioned in bug-tracker site.

Now since you are mostly successful in rotating the screen, you must be knowing exact squence of commands. Now you can fine tune your system with different available options / work arounds on the net with due care to backup / rename all successful files first !  And try rotating sequence after every option.

For example :
1) Disable DRI or set AGP speed to 4x in BIOS settings , if posible in your BIOS.
2) Add :
Option "AGPFastWrite"  "false"
.. , somewhere in .conf file - may be in card section.

By the way , most linux systems have a powerful command to show all the hardware details like cpu , monitor , graphic card etc : 
inxi -b

Code: (xorg_conf) [Select]
Section "Monitor"        Identifier   "Monitor0"        HorizSync       30.0 - 81.0        VertRefresh     56.0 - 75.0        ModeLine "1680x1050_60" 146.25 1680 1784 1960 2240 1050 1053 1059 1089 -hsync$        Option         "DPMS" "true"EndSectionSection "Device"        Identifier  "Card0"        Driver      "i810"        Card        "Intel 810"EndSectionSection "Screen"        Identifier "Screen0"        Device     "Card0"        Monitor    "Monitor0"        DefaultDepth     24        SubSection "Display"                Viewport   0 0                Depth     24                Modes    "1680x1050"        EndSubSectionEndSection

Try abv sample .conf file or add some of the options from abv file to your .conf file . Take care to take backup of your existing file first.
Best Luck !
