Display wont sync...

I am a newbie on Linux and while installing, i decided to do it in a graphical interface (choice of graphical or text) i choose Graphica. and i get a white sreen that my monitor cannot sync to. So i reboot and choose text. and everything installs ok, when i get to tell im i want to use KDE, it tells me that it has found my ATI Rage pro chip card and asks about the monitor. My monitor is in the list a MAG XJ700T (Max res:1280x1024multisync) I never had any problem using this monitor on multiple sources at any resolution, refresh rate and color depth. Even if i go to generic monitor a 640x480 @75Hz (what would work in any monitor) it is not even able to sync the image... what should i do?

When configuring your monitor , use if possible
extended super vga 600X 800 at 75 hz , 640 X 400 at 60 hz.
Choose the vertival range the biggest possible , like : 50 -100
you will able to change to 1280 to 1024 after X start
