I'll assume you've tried pressing alt-ctrl-+ to cycle through resolutions?

Failing that have a look at your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file (your original 
XF86Config may still be in that directory by the way, to use as 
reference). Needless to say anything which has 640x480 on it is suspect :)

I believe an XF86Config can be used with xorg, with no problems, apart 
from that they've renamed from kbd to keyboard or something like that....

Failing all the above, there's probably something like xf86config or 
what ever xorg calls it...

If you're still having no joy I could dig up an xorg.conf file (when at 
home, as I'm at work (but not really working)).
