My only other suggestion would be to start the Control Center (by
default, should be the wrench icon on your task bar at the bottom), then
select Peripherals --> Monitor & Display (Screen Configuration Editor)
From there, go into Administrator mode. NOTE: You may have to expand
the window, for some reason, it is hidden at the bottom. Also note:
when I enter the sudo password here, that window goes blank until I
resize it. You may have to, as well.
Then, go to the Hardware tab, and make sure your monitor and video card
are correctly selected. In my case, I have an nvidia 6800 clone card.
My monitor (Microtek) does not appear in the list, so I usually select a
Flat Panel 1280x1024.
Once you've done that, and applied the new settings, you may have to
restart X (CTRL-ALT-Backspace) then log back in. Go back to this same
place and see if the slider bar on the "Size, Orientation & Positioning"
Tab will allow you to select the resolution you want. You might have to
try different "Generic" monitor settings to get what you want, also.
Hope this helps. Setting up X is much easier than it used to be.
You'll find the right settings fairly quickly, I'm sure.
