pls don't make multiple posts. the mods don't like it and you might get banned.

ok here. are you sure your monitor supports the res you entered? check your /var/log/Xorg.0.log and look for errors.

you might consider checking your video drivers and make sure that X's modules properly supports them. you might also consider upgrading X's modules.

check your /var/log/Xorg.0.log too if you have direct rendering manager enabled.

Edit: drm has some conflict with other kernel modules
