You're right, I made an xf86config and X got better, I don't know how it was 
configuired but the new configuration is 1024x768, I think the old 
configuration was higher (because icons were more little than now) and maybe 
that was the poblem. The first time I made it the

XFree86 -configure

way because it worked on other systems but maybe that isn't always the best 

Thank you very much
