Default Native screen resolution

Hiya, I got Ubuntu installed after several years using Gentoo.
Ive bought a 20 inch LCD but the driver says I only got a 19 inch and I get out of range or black screen when i try to run 1600x1200.
Ive tried it on Windows and it work fine.

Ive tried both older versions of the driver as well as the newest.
Ive tried severeal options that has been mentioned in previous threads as well as all the solutions I found on google.

The xorg.conf is attached.
Any help is appreciated and if you need further info, dont hesitate to ask. Im not sure what else to add since i dont get a driver error.

3a: I have provided the xconf and i would think that would have been enough (or else they/you could ask as I stated in my previous post)
3b: I dont have an install problem
3c: I did that

I have NO idea how i could provide with more information thats why i said pls feel free to ask if i need to add anything else.

But on topic I resolved the problem. It turned out the cables messed things up. When we tried similar cables it found out our screens was actually 20 inch and not 19.

so...thanks for nothing i guess. As it seems in other posts you just post that link instead of trying to help. Im a bit dissapointed I have to say... I read the stickies so I could provide with as much info as I could but it was obviously not enough.
