Just for giggles, here is the entire ¨monitor¨ section of my xorg.conf:

Section "Screen"
        Identifier      "Default Screen"
        Device          "Trident Microsystems CyberBlade/i1"
        Monitor         "X171"
        DefaultDepth    24
        SubSection "Display"
                Depth           1
                Modes           "1280x1024" "1280x800" "1152x864" 
"1024x768" "800x600"
        EndSubSection
        SubSection "Display"
                Depth           4
                Modes           "1280x1024" "1280x800" "1152x864" 
"1024x768" "800x600"
        EndSubSection
        SubSection "Display"
                Depth           8
                Modes           "1280x1024" "1280x800" "1152x864" 
"1024x768" "800x600"
        EndSubSection
        SubSection "Display"
                Depth           15
                Modes           "1280x1024" "1280x800" "1152x864" 
"1024x768" "800x600"
        EndSubSection
        SubSection "Display"
                Depth           16
                Modes           "1280x1024" "1280x800" "1152x864" 
"1024x768" "800x600"
        EndSubSection
        SubSection "Display"
                Depth           24
                Modes           "1280x1024" "1280x800" "1152x864" 
"1024x768" "800x600"
        EndSubSection
EndSection
