I wood change my Dell I8k with yours. I have a 1400x1050 Display if 
that's what you want.

Just a joke.

I don't have any Modeline in my XF86Config-4. Try this:

Section "Monitor"
        Identifier      "Generic Monitor"
        HorizSync       30-100
        VertRefresh     60
        Option          "DPMS"

Section "Screen"
        Identifier      "Default Screen"
        Device          "Generic Video Card"
        Monitor         "Generic Monitor"
        DefaultDepth    24
        SubSection "Display"
                Depth           24
                Modes           "1400x1050"

You may need to replace the Sync and refresh values for your Display. I 
think the DPMS module will generate the Modline automatically for the 
resolution you specify. You also can try with different Color Depth values.
