Thanks, i'll check the result of that command when I get home. I did  
look through the OSD of the monitor, but it only said it was running  
at 60Hz, no resolution.

One thing that was odd was when I ran dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg  
it did list the resoltuion I wanted, but only at 100Hz, which I don't  
think is suited to lcd monitors, typical that all the other  
resolutions had 60hz available. I chose it anyway, and I'm thinking  
that maybe the monitor didn't like 100Hz so it defaulted to something  

Best regards
