Try posting your xorg.conf file. Try sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf  to
get there. I don't know what cvt is.

On the ubuntu forums try searching for ways to recreate your xorg file.
I believe you use the alternate install disc to start an install, and
once you have told it the resolutions you want to use and that section
is complete you can quit the installer and restart your machine with a
fresh xorg.conf file. I am sorry I don't have better info. It's been
awhile since I have had to wrestle with this, but rest assured, the
answers you are looking for really are on the ubuntu forums or in the
ubuntu wiki.
