Mine has a button to press which tells me the optimum resolution and the
one being used.

There is a direct connection between the monitor and the video adapter?

Which is just a different classification from the one in your first

But the card doesn't do 1280x1024 or 1024x768. I wonder how trustworthy
xresprobe is and what /var/log/Xorg.0.log says.
The nouveau driver - have you tried it? No xorg.conf required. Move it
out of the way if there is one and revert any changes you may have made
to stop nouveau operating.
