You can use - dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86 which will re-run the
debian configuration scripts and allow you to change the screen
Generally the cause of this problem is that your hardware does not scale
the display.  

You could try editing /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 and changing the default
screen res.

If all else fails, you may want to try XFree86 -configure which will try
to get the best settings automagically.
