resolution problems at less then 1600x1200

I am currently running Debian unstable. If I put the resolution on my monitor down to less then 1600x1200 it doesnt fill my screen completely (its a Toshiba Laptop LCD). It works fine on other distros at lower resolutions like 1024x768
so what am I doing wrong? I have included my xf86config-4

# XF86Config-4 (XFree86 X Window System server configuration file)
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
# Edit this file with caution, and see the XF86Config-4 manual page.
# (Type "man XF86Config-4" at the shell prompt.)
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xfree86 package upgrades *only*
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xfree86
# package.
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following commands as root:
# cp /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 /etc/X11/XF86Config-4.custom
# md5sum /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 > /var/lib/xfree86/XF86Config-4.md5sum
# dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86
