I am confused...
Yesterday I got a new LCD display as replacement of a Philps 107 E CRT
display...
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"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"

# keyboard added by rhpxl
	Identifier  "Keyboard0"
	Driver      "kbd"
	Option	    "XkbModel" "pc105"
	Option	    "XkbLayout" "it"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
	Identifier   "Monitor0"
	ModelName    "Philips 107E"
	HorizSync    30.0 - 70.0
	VertRefresh  50.0 - 160.0
	Option	    "dpms"
EndSection

Section "Device"
	Identifier  "Videocard0"
	Driver      "nouveau"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
	Identifier "Screen0"
	Device     "Videocard0"
	Monitor    "Monitor0"
        ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
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.

	DefaultDepth     24
	SubSection "Display"
		Viewport   0 0
		Depth     24
	EndSubSection
	SubSection "Display"
		Viewport   0 0
		Depth     16
		Modes    "800x600"
	EndSubSection
EndSection
