Screen resolution problem


HI!
I just installed fluxbox (with X server ).
It runs OK, but when I try to change resolution by intering in /etc/X11/xorg.conf "Modes 1280x1024"
in Screen section , it seems just useless because it does not take effect. I tried lower resolution ( 800x600 ) this also without any effect ; now resolution in 1024x768 but for my 21" monitor this looks really ugly
So I guess the question is:
Why does "changing resolution" not take effect ?
Please help.
Thanks in advance.

PS:


here is my /etc/X11/xorg.conf:

Code:
Section "ServerLayout"

This section is missing two lines about horizontal and vertical ranges.
Mine reads:
HorizSync 30-62
VertRefresh 50-70

But you have to find the ranges for your particular monitor.

That was the problem.
Thank you for help.
