Second that.  I had the same problems as the OP here after switching to a new 
LCD monitor.  It refused to do anything higher than 640x480, which looked 
absolutely dismal on a 19" screen hard wired for 1280x1024.  I finally worked 
it out by copying bits of a KNOPPIX-generated conf file into my 
debconf-generated one.  The Debian auto config bits always did the wrong 
thing no matter how many different "front door" tactics I tried.  If all else 
fails, hack the thing and get it over with.
