So I ran dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86. It offered me like 12 possible resolutions but 1280x800 was not one of them. I also tried configuring Xwindow using xserver-agx and xserver-w32, but 1280x800 wasn't an option with either of them.

Any thoughts?

Get the specs of your monitor and adjust the horizsync and vertrefresh in the config file.

Note:
If you use any config-tools, first create a backup of the existing config.
