Welcome to LQ. As a quick side comment, conventional spelling in posts is appreciated.

Most likely you need to reconfigure either your XF86Config file or your xorg.conf file. I'm not sure which one Mandrake uses, but if you go to the /etc/X11 directory, one or the other would be there. If you post the contents of that file here, the problem can probably be found relatively quickly. -- J.W.
