probably this high mode is not supported by this
driver/card/monitor try using something else and
double check the driver - sometimes using default one
helps. Not sure but I thought modes cane be setup
"800X600 1024X768 1280X1024"
in any case I would not advice to use highest.
Try lower ones first. Play with deapth as well.
It did cause some problems some time ago too.
Later on I'll check my confs...
