Screen resolution will not stay even with save session


I am running SUSE 10.0 on a 19" monitor. I am using GNOme and have the screen resolution set to 1280x1024@60hz. When I logout I check "Save session" and then sometimes when I log back in my desktop is back to 1024x768@75hz (this is what the resolution defaulted to when I did my install). Sometimes when I log back in everything is fine. I can't figure out why sometimes it goes to the smaller and sometimes it stays.

CTX VL950.

I went in and set the monitor to the correct model instead of generic VESA. Restarting my graphics now to see if it works.

edit: set everything to the model of the monitor. 1280x1024 67hz, log out and saved. logged in and it was back to 1024x768. I found another post with a similiar problem but didn't write down the solution, it was a .config file. going to look for that and give it a whirl.

edit2: Ok this was the other thread. I'm guessing that this won't do much since I am using GNOme.

This is what my xorg.conf file looks like:
Code:
Section "Screen"
  DefaultDepth 24
  SubSection "Display"
    Depth      15
    Modes      "1280x1024" "1280x960" "1280x800" "1152x864" "1280x768" "1024x768" "800x600" "768x576" "640x480"
The whole file is here. http://lordfett.com/linux/xorg.conf

When I first set this system up it automatically set itself to 1280x1024, I was usig a 17" at the time. Then I switched to this 19" and it was fine. Recently I had to reinstall SUSE because I f'd up my root password and then made things worse trying to recover it. I did the reinstall with the same 17" monitor then switched to the 19" but this time it wants to keep it at 1024x768.

Any ideas? I just did another install of SUSE10 on another hard drive (same pc) and it seems to keep the resolution fine, but I would hate to have to reinstall just to fix this.

Has Yast2 identified your graphics card correctly? Have a look in xorg.conf - Section "Device", immediately after Section "Screen".
