    The horizontal sync and the vertical refresh rate are usualy stored in /etc/X11/XF86Config (or wherever the XFree config file is)

    Find the monitor section of the file (it looks a bit like this)

    Code:
    Section "Monitor"
    
        Identifier  "My Monitor"
    
    # HorizSync is in kHz unless units are specified.
    # HorizSync may be a comma separated list of discrete values, or a
    # comma separated list of ranges of values.
    # NOTE: THE VALUES HERE ARE EXAMPLES ONLY.  REFER TO YOUR MONITOR'S
    # USER MANUAL FOR THE CORRECT NUMBERS.
    
        HorizSync   31.5 - 50.0
    
    #    HorizSync  30-64         # multisync
    #    HorizSync  31.5, 35.2    # multiple fixed sync frequencies
    #    HorizSync  15-25, 30-50  # multiple ranges of sync frequencies
    
    # VertRefresh is in Hz unless units are specified.
    # VertRefresh may be a comma separated list of discrete values, or a
    # comma separated list of ranges of values.
    # NOTE: THE VALUES HERE ARE EXAMPLES ONLY.  REFER TO YOUR MONITOR'S
    # USER MANUAL FOR THE CORRECT NUMBERS.
    
        VertRefresh 40-90
    
    EndSection
    change the settings to math your monitor and voila, as they say
