I found the specs on the net.  I searched for BENQ G774 SPECIFICATIONS.  
Lots of pages turned up.  I ran the X config script as specified on 
and edited xorg.conf in /etc/X11 to insert the vertical and horizontal 
refresh limits.  I rebooted and amazingly, X worked properly with the 
res and refresh rates I had specified.  It's a 15'' screen I set at 1024 
x 768.  Works well for a 55 year old client.  Finer res is harder for us 
55'rs to see.
