    Erm when you install X, and run xorgconfig (do both of these afre you reboot) make sure you have configured X correctly and set the resolution in the section in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file that reads: Section "Screen"

    Yes, it will open the config file so you can edit , save your changes and exit.
