Hmm, X might not be using the highest resolution listed in your xorg.conf, 
there is some interrogating the monitor to see what it supports stuff that 
doesn't always work. 

If you run "xrandr" in a terminal what resolution does it report is being 
used, and does it list any other options?

Conscious is when you are aware of something and conscience is when
you wish you weren't.
