Default desktop resolution changes

I would like to run my computer in 1280x1024 resolution, and my card supports it (Geforce FX 5200, 17" CRT monitor that supported 1280x1024 res under windows) but for some reason, i am unable to use that resolution.

here is my XF86Config-4 file...

Section "Files"
FontPath "unix/:7100" # local font server
# if the local font server has problems, we can fall back on these
FontPath "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/misc"
FontPath "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/cyrillic"
FontPath "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi/:unscaled"

Default Re: desktop resolution changes

The monitor's HorizSync and VertRefresh seem awfully low, chances are the higher resolution modes are invalidated by the driver. Please be sure to specify the correct frequency ranges.
