problem with screen resolution


I installed a Fedora 11 on my machine and i am having probleme with screen resolution:
in fact, i was using a big screen 24" and the screen was flue, resolution is 1280*1024. when i try to change resolution, I won't see anything on my screen (very very flue). when i try to change the refresh period, i can't change the default one that is set to 0!!
when i try to connect the machine to a 15" screen, i get the message: "outside limit H: 46.4 HZ V: 86.8 HZ"

what is the problem? and how can i resolve it?

thanks in advance
