Problems with Xorg.conf

well, I am actualy working on Xorg, but this is a lot strange.. I did lots of time xf86config and xf86cfg (Expert mode) and I can't at all fix it well...
I am working with 1024x780 but everything it to big, althow the leters are this resolution ... I am using KDE and when I go to "configure Desktop" this tells me that my visual is 800x600 ... but this is not it at all... how can I fix it to any other resolution? .. in the combo box I can't select any other

Are the correct VertRefresh and HorizSync values in your xorg.conf?

If you're trying to fix an xorg related problem it's generally a good idea to post your xorg.conf as this will save a lot of needless questions and posts.

oh ... ok sorry... I think it is correct, I configured it as it is (the most likely) on the Monitor back ...
The primary is a Sampo AlphaScan 511 and the secound is a Medion MD41885FN...
my Xorg.conf is this so:

Section "ServerLayout"

Identifier "Simple Layout"
Screen "Screen 1" 0 0
InputDevice "Mouse1" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Keyboard1" "CoreKeyboard"

Section "Device"
Identifier "Standard VGA"
Driver "ati"
VendorName "Unknown"
BoardName "Unknown"

Section "Device"
Identifier "** ATI Radeon (generic) [radeon]"
Driver "ati"

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen 1"
Device "** ATI Radeon (generic) [radeon]"
Monitor "My Monitor"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Virtual 1024 768
Depth 16
Modes "1024x768" "1152x864"
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Virtual 1152 864
Depth 24
Modes "1024x768" "1152x864"

Section "DRI"
Group 0
I selected only visualisation sections

By the way, I have been having some problems with the configuration of the dual monitor, I don't want a cloned image, but it works like this, even if I make 2 graphical cards, 2 monitors and 2 screens, even if I configure a diferent layout it don't work...

I have a Radeon 9200SE ... (lspci):
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV280 [Radeon 9200 SE] (rev 01)
01:00.1 Display controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV280 [Radeon 9200 SE] (Secondary) (rev 01)

thank you
