New monitor setup
 
One of my old monitors failed today. I had twin monitors setup on my
Matrox G550 video card. At this point, I can see everything boot fine,
but all blank when X starts.

Looking at my xorg.conf file, I see Screen_0 and Screen_1, identical
settings at this point. I assume I need to add a new Monitor section and
change Screen_0 to work with my new widescreen ASUS VK222H monitor as it
is set as the left. Below is a link to the manual specs, but I'm not
sure which group of information I should use or how I should set teh
HorizSync and VertRefresh ranges. The manual does not give ranges,
should I use the lowest to highest in whichever group is needed? I am
connecting my monitor to DVI input on the card. My old second monitor is
attached to VGA. Here is my current xorg.conf...
