Make sure the association btw. a screen and your Monitor section exists.
My file looks like this:

Section "Monitor"
        Identifier      "fujitsu"
        HorizSync       60
        VertRefresh     65-80

Section "Screen"
        Identifier      "Default Screen"
        Device          "tnt"
        Monitor         "fujitsu"
        DefaultDepth    16
        SubSection "Display"
                Depth           1
                Modes           "1280x1024"
