This means that the x server can't find an entry in the 'screen' section of your XF86Config file matching the mode 640x400. Depending on your video card you may have to run the Superprobe program to probe for the dot clocks for your card. What type of card (chipset, memory, etc) do you have? Was it running before or are you setting up X for the first time?

If your X starts, this is just a warning.
If you want to get rid of it, just remove the ModeLine for 640x800  from your Monitor section, and/or from the Modes line in the Screen section.
