When the monitor says “out of range”, try pressing the keys + and – on the numeric keypad while holding Ctrl and Alt pressed: it should cycle through all the available resolutions, until you find one that fits your monitor.

For some reason gnome screen resolution tool is buggy on my computer, and so is xrandr.
I’m using squeeze. Which debian version do you have ?

Can I recommend you to try “arandr”  you can install it via apt-get.
