Is the resolution OK if you login to KDE? Was the monitor switched on when
the xserver started? What graphics card is in that machine?
If the resolution is wrong for your KDE session as well, you could switch
to a text console using the shortcut Ctrl-Alt-F1 and login. Then use
sudo /etc/init.d/kdm stop
sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
sudo /etc/init.d/kdm start
If you use gdm, replace "/etc/init.d/kdm" with "/etc/init.d/gdm" for the
commands above. These commands might repair the problem, but if your
graphics card is not really supported, like e.g. some older ATI cards,
that will not help.
