Hoary Xorg Screen Resolution Problems

Below is my Xorg.conf. On my HP NC6000 laptop I can use the laptop
screen at it's hardwired 1400x1050 resolution. When I connect my
external monitor (that works at 1600x1200, 1400x1050 in windows, and
1600x1200 in Ubuntu when connected to one of my other PCs) it only
displays a fixed 640x480 viewport into the 1400x1050 window size the
laptop is using.

This is irrespective of whether I enable the internal LCD, the external
monitor or both at boot up.  I'm running array 6 and have updated to all
the latest packages with Synaptic.

I'm happy for the external monitor to only do 1400 or even 1280 (which
is what my external monitor at work can do), but not a viewport at
640!!! 

Has anyone got any tips on how to solve this?
