Nope. You only have the VGA port active. That's good.
For some reason X isn't finding your monitor. My /etc/X11/xorg.conf has
the following entries for my Acer1916W (at 1440X900):
ModelName "LCD Panel 1440x900"
DisplaySize 365 228
### Comment all HorizSync and VertSync values to use DDC:
HorizSync 31.5 - 100.0
VertRefresh 59.0 - 75.0
Device "ATI Radeon"
Viewport 0 0
Modes "1440x900" "1440x900"
and setting the Monitor Type to "LCD Panel 1440x900"
You'll want display size at "336 269"
