    Open file in nano and edit it.
    Code:
    nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    Press Ctrl+X, Y and hit Enter key.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Okk ! Post all Section Screen here.
    Are these Refresh rates supported by your Monitor? Check Monitor's Manual.
    Code:
    Section "Monitor"
        Identifier  "Generic Monitor"
        Option     "DPMS"
         HorizSync     28-33
        VertRefresh   43-72
     EndSection

    this is a small sony vaio laptop, several years old, and i have no idea if i ever had a monitor manual. i DO know that xserver-xorg reconfigure says that values under 30 for the horizsync are extremely rare. i don't know if those refresh rates are supported by the monitor. sorry.

    This is Section Screen of my xorg.conf file.

    Code:
    Section "Screen"
        Identifier    "Default Screen"
        Device        "xxxxx"
        Monitor        "xxxxx"
        DefaultDepth    16
        SubSection "Display"
            Depth        16
            Modes        "1024x768" "800x600"
        EndSubSection
        SubSection "Display"
            Depth        24
            Modes        "1024x768" "800x600"
        EndSubSection
    EndSection
