Xorg.conf on an ubuntu laptop with second screen


guys,

I'm trying to set up a second screen plugged into the vga port of my laptop with xinerama. First I just want the desktop screen to show at the correct resolution, but it's just showing at the same resolution as the laptop. Any ideas why? My xorg.conf is below - can anyone see what I've missed out?

# /etc/X11/xorg.conf (xorg X Window System server configuration file)
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following command:
# sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg
