This doesn't work for me (assuming you meant video=VGA-1:1440x900). Are you using xorg-edgers? What does your xorg.conf look like? What else is on your boot parameter line? I want 1280 so badly I could scream! Also Im surprised VGA-1 is what you used I was tryiing LVDS1 and LVDS-1....

Update 2: Koadman, what is your display model?
sudo aptitude install read-edid
sudo get-edid 2>/dev/null|strings -5
(which is a LG/Philips product code; also I have the SM128C SSD.)
