You need to look up the frequency specs for your monitor on the web ... then edit the file:

/etc/X11/XF86Config

and change the lines:

HorizSync xx-xx
VertRefresh xx-xx


If your monitor was an NEC E1100 (that is the monitor I use), the scan rates would be:

HorizSync 31-82
VertRefresh 55-120

-------------------------------------------
You also need to make sure you are using the correct video card driver:

see this LIST, find your card's driver, edit /etc/X11/XF86Config again and make sure the driver line has the correct driver from the list...my Nvidia Geforce card looks like this:

CODE
Section "Device"
   Identifier "device1"
   VendorName "nVidia Corporation"
   BoardName "Nvidia GeForce 5200"
   Driver "nv"
   Option "DPMS"
EndSection
