True, but RTFM != advice
TheMadAd19 - based on your description, it sounds like the file that controls your monitor display is not configured correctly for your system. Please list the technical specs of your system (brand and model number, etc) and please post your current XF86Config file or your xorg.conf file (Sorry I can't be more specific but I don't use Debian so I'm not sure which one your system is using. In either case, the file would be in the /etc/X11 directory) If you want to be more proactive you can try re-running the X setup routine (aka xwmconfig, etc) manually, however, that process will ask you a variety of technical questions about your video card, monitor, etc, so be prepared. -- J.W.
