You may need to generate an xorg.conf file.  I prefer to install the
'system-config-display' package, and then as root run
'system-config-display --reconfig'.  Select your proper monitor from
the list.  When you're done, edit the 'Modes' line in the "Screen"
section to include a mode for your actual resolution.

I don't have any real KDE skills so I can't help you with this one.
Anyone else?
