1) Sometimes you have to use + and - on your Num-Pad
2) Do you have entries like these in your XF86Config :
Section "Screen"
        Identifier "Screen0"
        Device     "Card0"
        Monitor    "Monitor0"
        DefaultColorDepth 16
        SubSection "Display"
                Depth     1
        EndSubSection
        SubSection "Display"
                Depth     4
        EndSubSection
        SubSection "Display"
                Depth     8
        EndSubSection
        SubSection "Display"
                Depth     15
        EndSubSection
        SubSection "Display"
                Depth     16
                Modes     "1024x768"
                Modes     "800x600"
                Modes     "640x480"
        EndSubSection


EndSection

Uli.
