tburn - when in X, press Ctrl-Alt-+ keys together serval times, and report back.
in /etc/XF86Config's  "screen" section: change order of Modes., or remove unwanted modes. For example:

Section "Screen"
   Subsection "Display"
      Modes "320x400" "640x800" "1024x762"

remove "320x400"  in  the Modes line above.
