Likely your /etc/X11/XF86Config file wasn't written properly during the installation. Make sure you know all the specs for your monitor and videocard first. Then run the xf86config command, That will launch a text-based wizard that will walk you through re-setting up the XF86Config file.

If it still doesn't work, you might have to manually edit the file using a text editor.
