Why is xorg ignoring the frequencies I give it?

Thanks for that. 

I ran the reconfigure again and took the default settings then restarted

I have attached the xorg.conf and Xorg.0.log files.

This time my monitor reported "Out Of Range (87.3KHz / 69Hz)". 

Many thanks,


P.S. The machine previously had Mandrake v10 installed and that worked ok
with this monitor so I'm hoping this is just a case of getting the right
parameters in the config file.

Hi Andy,

Please send a copy of your /etc/X11/xorg.conf and /var/log/Xorg.0.log
That should make it easy to assist you.
