If you use GNOME you can change the resolution via System -> Preferences
-> Screen resolution.
KDE should have a similar application IIRC.
Another option is to remove the 1280x1024 in the Screen section in
xorg.conf. If it fails you may want to try to remove the HorizFreq and
VertRefresh from the Monitor section too and have X figure it out using
If it does fail examine /var/log/Xorg.0.log for the reason.
