Also, I tried modifying /usr/lib/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-monitor.conf to fix this problem, but still does not work:

             SubSection      "Display"
                Viewport        0 0
                Depth           1

I'm using Gnome. System > Preference > Monitor screen resolution sticks to 800x600. What am I going to do?
