You probably want to look at you XF86Config file.  At the 
command prompt, "man XF86Config" will give you the low-down 
on what your options are in the config file.

Many don't seem to have a problem with the config 
application, but it's never been a once-over solution for 
me.  When setting up x, I'll use the application to create 
the config file, then I'll go in and customize it for my 
needs.  I assume it's because I have one of those cheapo 
video adapters built into the motherboard, but I imagine 
that a lot of people find it necessary to do so.

Hope this helps.
