Resolution is unreadable


I tried switching my res to 1152x864 which my monitor and card card handle in Windows, so I selected it in Fedora.

I reboot and cannot read anything. What do I have to do to fix this? I couldn't see that anything should be changed in XF86config..

I tried that, so only 800x600 and 640x480 is listed, but it's still freaking out. I think I may of selected the wrong monitor also.
