In your xorg.conf file, what screens do you have defined and what
resolutions are they setup for? E.g. in mine (outputting to a 100MHz
Song Wega WS @800x600)

Section "Screen"
    Identifier  "Screen0"
    Device      "ATI Graphics Adapter"
    Monitor     "PAL-TV"
    DefaultDepth 24

    #Option "backingstore"

    Subsection "Display"
        Depth       24
        Modes       "800x600"
        ViewPort    0 0
