    Here are the specs for your monitor:

    You'll need to be root when you edit the xorg.conf file.

    problem solved!

    solved!
    seems the problem was in the nvidia drivers for all the kernells exept the 2.6.15-26-amd64-k,
    the xorg was outputting "not using mode:1280x800 becase low memory";
    my xorg(works):
    Code:
    leon@leon-desktop:~$ cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    # /etc/X11/xorg.conf (xorg X Window System server configuration file)
    #
    # This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
    # values from the debconf database.
    #
    # Edit this file with caution, and see the /etc/X11/xorg.conf manual page.
    # (Type "man /etc/X11/xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
    #
    # This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
    # if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
    # package.
    #
    # If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
    # again, run the following command:
    #   sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg
