I have an nvidia card and am using the "nvidia" binary driver. If the
"screen resolution" setting did not work I don't really know what you
could try next, maybe swap graphics cards to see if that is the problem,
maybe your current card cannot handle that resolution, maybe try in 16
bit mode "DefaultDepth 16" in xorg.conf, xdpyinfo may give some extra
info on what resolution is running.
