No need to 'bump' your message up, we're still following it - but some of us are in completely different timezones & have day jobs - not to worry thoug

I couldn't see any "Device" listing for you graphics adapter, so for listing below, I have hashed it out. The listing below is what I figure the xorg.cong or XF86Conf entries should look like, based on working examples I use:

Code:
Section "Monitor"
    VendorName    "AT&T"
    ModelName     "17Value"
    Identifier    "AT&T17"
    HorizSync      30.0 - 64.0
    VertRefresh    50-90
    Option        "DPMS" "true"
EndSection

Section "Device"
    Identifier	 "Standard VGA"
    VendorName	 "Unknown"
    BoardName	 "Unknown"
EndSection

#Section "Device"
#    Identifier   "128v2"
#    VendorName	 "Imagine"
#    Driver       "???"
#    VideoRam      ???
#EndSection

Section "Screen"
    Identifier   "Screen 1"
    Device       "Standard VGA"
    Monitor      "AT&T17"
    DefaultDepth  16

    Subsection "Display"
        Depth     8
        Modes    "1280x1024" "1024x768"
        ViewPort  0 0
    EndSubsection
    Subsection "Display"
        Depth     16
        Modes    "1280x1024" "1024x768"
        ViewPort  0 0
    EndSubsection
    Subsection "Display"
        Depth     24
        Modes    "1280x1024" "1024x768"
        ViewPort  0 0
    EndSubsection
EndSection
You say it recognises you graphics card - So what I recommend is that you run xorgconf or xf86config.
Manually enter the monitor details:

HorizSync 30.0 - 64.0
VertRefresh 50-90

Then select the graphics adapter from the list it presents.

When it asks you about the modes, it will give a five item menu - items 1 to 4 let you edit the different colour depth settings, 5 accepts the setting. Enter each colour depth setting, removing all resolutions except 1280x1024 and 1024x768 - though I would also recommend swapping these around, so that 1024x768 becomes the default resolution.
