I am confused...
Yesterday I got a new LCD display as replacement of a Philps 107 E CRT
When I restarted tha machine, I got the old resolution, so I tried to
change it witg system-config-display, I entered a generic LCD
(1360x768) display as my Acer was not on the list, I logged out and I
logged in but in system-config-display I still get my olp Philips with
a maximum resolution of 1280x1024!!!.
This is my xorg.conf file

# Xorg configuration created by system-config-display

Section "ServerLayout"
	Identifier     "single head configuration"
	Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
	InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"

Right here, you are still telling X to use Monitor0, which is your old monitor. I'm not sure what X is doing, you need to look at your /var/log/Xorg.0.log file to know for sure.
