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.
