Both screen and video card manages 1600x1200. (works with winxp)
Whatever I try in screen configuration editor it says :
Sorry, this configuration video card driver
and monitor doesn't appear to work.

pkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg does not work like it used to. No possibility to change video settings, only keyboard.

Any suggestions?

Usind sid, amd64, geforce 8500GT

Which driver do you use, nv or nvidia? If you are not sure about this,

grep /drivers/ /var/log/Xorg.0.log

in an X terminal and post the output here.

grep /drivers/ /var/log/Xorg.0.log
(II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers//nv_drv.so

It seems to be nv driver.

Try the NVidia driver with your 8500GT?
