Question startx (KDE) and xorgcfg problem


Hey All

Today I upgraded my Slackware 10.0 to Slackware 10.1

This time some strange things happens. When I run startx my Monitor says "out of range" no problem so far. I used xorgcfg and played around with it a few times. Now when I start my X (KDE) it still says "out of range" but with "CTRL and Alt and +" I can switch the resolution of the screen.

This made me able to run my Monitor in 1024 x 768 Resolution. I also was able to run the
control Center and change my Display Size in the Peripherals. 1280 x 1024

Now I thought.. WELL everything is fine, But if I restart again the KDE (startx)
It still says "out of range" and I have to repeat the "CTRL and Alt and +" process until my Resolution is the right one.

Maybe it was the wrong turn to choose xorgcfg to set my Resolution etc.. but I am not very good with the /etc/X11/xorg.conf

here you can take a look at my current /etc/X11/xorg.conf (I bet something is more then just wrong with it.. but I am too n00b to figure it out .. sorry about)
