[Wine] wine resolution exceeds monitor

hi there,
i tried to get "start trek - birth of the federation" run in wine 1.1.13 on linux mint. usually this game doesnt need more then 800x600. it works in virtual screen mode, but when i want to start it with fullscreen my tft acer 1703 tft shuts down and says that the resolution range is exceeded.
 the terminal says:"fixme:xrandr:X11DRV_XRandR_SetCurrentMode Cannot change screen BPP from 32 to 16". so i think there could be a problem with switching the colour depth.
i suppose it is a problem with my xorg.conf, but i havent found a solution in the net yet. as far as i know the nvidia-driver recognizes the acer as a crt-monitor, whereas it is a tft. and i dont know what "twinview" is, because i dont have any other screen connected.
im not sure if the crt-issue is the main problem of this, because civilization 4 worked with wine. maybe someone knows a solution to this? thank you for your help.
here is my xorg.conf:
