Open /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 with a text editor (or /etc/X11/XF86Config --
I don't remember which one you are using).  Find the following lines:

   HorizSync XX-XX
   VertRefresh XX-XX

Change the XX's appropriate to your monitor.  The values should be listed
in your monitor's manual.  If they're not listed oin your manual, you can
try guessing.  If you need a reference point, my monitor is set to:

   HorizSync 31.5-70.1
   VertRefresh 50-90
