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.
