Unfortunately not since it’s a hardware issue. Providing you a shot using my
digital camera won’t help much either, I guess.

It’s a LCD monitor.

The native resolution is 1280×1024, as I am using correctly, the vertical
refresh rate is 75Hz, the horizontal one is 80kHz. The video bandwidth seems to
be 135MHz. It’s in German, but a lot of details are written here:

> looks like your monitor ran at 75 Hz in 6.6.193.  try adding this modeline:
> Modeline "1280x1024_75.00"  138.75  1280 1368 1504 1728  1024 1027 1034 1072
> -hsync +vsync
> Option "PreferredMode"  "1280x1024_75.00"

I tried that and X again fails to launch with this line. Also setting 75Hz
manually using Xfce’s setting manager after launching the X session with the
working line afterwards makes the monitor behave buggy again.

Thanks for this tip.
