Gary,

All I can think of (being unfamiliar with Gnome) is that the graphics
card isn't up to displaying 1280x1024 at 24 bits. Or you haven't copied
xorg.conf.new to /etc/X11/xorg.conf and it's picking up a stale
xorg.conf.

Try changing the following parameters:

         DefaultColorDepth 8
         Depth          8
         Modes          "1024x768"

in /etc/X11/xorg.conf and restart X/Gnome. If it works then add higher
resolutions and colour depths until you achieve a satisfactory result.

You can also try starting X bare:

Xorg -config /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Ctl+Alt+Backspace to kill it. That will determine whether it's an X
problem or a Gnome problem.
