MMMhhh.... ok, looks like first mode is 1280x1024... if you don't see
any (EE) or (WW) then no problem (?) :'(

I read on xorg wiki (http://www.x.org/wiki/FAQVideoModes) you can add a
"VertRefresh" parameter to the monitor section (as well as an HorizSync
one, but you don't want to specify it, do you ?) : adding this one may
allow you to access higher (or lower) refresh rates - I remember seeing
an old monitor flicker not because refresh rate was too low, but because
it was too high...

Regards

P.S : I don't know what you acutally know about commandline, but be
prepared to go to a virtual console (CTRL+ALT+F1 for instance), and to
edit text... in text mode (using vi/vim/ged or something like that) : if
you haven't done so already, please take time to read and practice vi
for instance, otherwise you could be stuck with command line without any
way to revert your changes...
