On the same portable there is also a SUSE Linux 10.1 and WinXP, which works
in 1280x768 (so the hardware can use this resolution)

In /var/log/Xorg.0.log is see many references to 1280x768 for the 'local
flat panel' , PanelID returned panel resolution: 1280x768, also
Printing DDC gathered Modelines:

a KhZ to end)

Just because you put a modeline in the xorg config, does not mean the
videodriver, monitor or card itself, supports that mode.
Inspect /var/log/Xorg.0.log, specifically the supported modes detection,lines

It's also helpful to know the make and model of your graphics card, and which
driver you're using for it.


Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules
   and never get to the software part.
