I have Creator 3D in my Ultra 10.  I am running it with 1280x1024x67 on my LCD.
 I booted Solaris via the serial console then ran ffbconfig to find out all
combination of supported resolution/frequency.  That is the only one works on my
LCD.  Perhaps, you might want to find out what your hardware is capable of
before you can change your setting.
