Depends on what driver you have now. The "nv" driver has problems
with lots of video cards and monitors:

as does the potential replacement "nouveau" driver:

So, if you have an nvidia card, the best bet for a working
driver is to add the livna repo and download the kmod-nvidia
driver.

You could take a look at the /var/log/Xorg.0.log file and
see if is says things like "Oh look, I'm supposed to run this
display at 1680x1050, but I don't think that's a good idea" :-).
