Dual head resolution problems

I am having a little trouble with a dual head setup. First of all things were working perfectly for a while, but just a couple of hours ago I started experiencing a resolution problem. I have xorg installed, an ati x300 vid card, nvidia vid card. The nvidia is my primary card and the ati is the secondary card. I have the default depth and resoutions set in xorg.conf, and like I said it worked for a few months, but now my ati display is now set to a resoution of 640x480, and I cannot seem to get it to chang back. Just wondering if any one else has had this problem and if they got it fixed.

thanks for your time,

Found the problem, I looked at the X logs and saw that I needed to set the refresh rates for my monitor. It now works fine.
