Not going above 640x480

I have a dual PII with 512mb Ram and a generic monitor. It is using the Cirrus Logic GD544x graphics driver.

I have changed the refresh rate and tried hundreds of things in the xorg.Conf file and it will simply not go above 640x480.

Can anyone shead some light on this issue, please.


P.S. If anyone is running the GD544x card with any monitor at 1024x768 on FC2, please send me a full copy of your xorg.conf file.

No the monitor was not detected. I had to put a monitor in but I have tried almost all the monitors avalible in the list and none will allow me to go over 640x480.

Some make it so I have the option to go over, but when I choose any other resolution and restart X i still run at 640x480.
