assuming you installed the standard release and you are  running xfce you can click on the main menu point to settings and click display settings.

check this thread (particularly this post): http://www.vectorlinux.com/forum2/index.php?topic=4258.msg27883#msg27883

It should help you fix your situation.  You should uncheck the 'save settings...' option when exiting XFCE.

HTH and good luck!

If you want to try without manually editing the config file, you can reboot, select "linux-tui" and log in as root.
- Type vasm and hit "enter"
- Arrow down to "XWINDOW", hit "enter"
- Next page should have first entry, "XCONF" highlighted. Hit "enter"
- Now follow the prompts. You will be asked to choose your screen resolution.
