Hi Hendrikus,

Maybe someone with more knowledge will give you better suggestion, but maybe you can go in safety-mode and reinstall your xorg.conf-backup file. It seems whenever I make any changes to my  Display Settings, I lose my resolution and locks it at 640 x 480.
After I installed nVidia driver, my xorg.conf looks like this (without any additional changes to colour depth or monitor).

Code:
Section "ServerFlags"
EndSection

Section "Device"
    Identifier  "VideoCard"
    Driver  "nvidia"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
    Identifier  "Screen"
    Device  "VideoCard"
EndSection

Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier  "Layout"
    Screen  "Screen"
EndSection

I have had similar problems in the past.  What I did was to log in in text mode (by pressing Control+Alt+F1).

Login as root,  give password.  Then

$rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf

You then get a message like:  "really remove file?"  type yes.

This removes the xorg.conf file.  The system cannot start into the graphical mode without that file,  so when you reboot,  Pardus autodetects the best config and rewrites the file.  That has worked for me in the past.  I hope it works for you.  Good luck.
