    This is the problem

    Code:
    HorizSync 14647.0 - 0.0
    HorizSync 30.0 - 97.0
    VertRefresh 876171072.0 - 892481856.0
    First off, that first HorizSync is wrong, and since you got another one below it, just delete the first one. Second, there's no way you could possible have that for VertRefresh. Look up your monitor and put in the proper values for the horizontal sync rate and vertical refresh rate.

    Damn thats an INSANE refresh rate!!!
    look at your monitor's web site for the real spec, and update your XF config file with the proper values
