Problem with Screen Resolution..

One day when rebooting my sytem i noticed that my resolution had gone to 800x600, so i opened the GUI Control Center and changed it back to 1204x768, rebooted my system but no changes, then i attacked the /etc/X11/XF86Config file and did a little changes in there, rebooted my system again, but still no changes... what's wrong ? how can i change my reso back to normal

/etc/X11/XF86Config :

	Identifier "Screen 1"
	Device     "VESA Framebuffer"
	Monitor    "My Monitor"
	DefaultDepth     24
	SubSection "Display"
		Depth     8
		Modes    "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
	SubSection "Display"
		Depth     16
		Modes    "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
	SubSection "Display"
		Depth     24
		Modes    "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
	SubSection "Display"
		Depth     32
		Modes    "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"

im really confused, whats wrong ?

1. did you check also if the graphic card setup is correct in you XF86Config file?
2. Are you sure that your monitor suport this resolutio with 24 bits color mode?
3. backup this file and try to run xfree86setup...
4. just a test: try to change to Default Depth 16...

If it does not work, please, post the results..
