It just might work. It certainly won't hurt to try. (well, it *could*
I suppose, just review it first).

But it sounds like you just need to make a simple tweak to your
xorg.conf. Search through it for the HorizSync and VertRefresh lines,
comment them out (with a "#") and see what happens. X is pretty good
at detecting monitors these days.

If that doesn't work, please provide your xorg.conf, output of lspci
and perhaps the specs of your monitor.
