Description of problem:
When selecting generic crt->1024x768, the horizsync appears at 31.5->57.0  This
drives my monitor out of sync. Adjusting the max sync to 55 allows me to view in
1024x768 fine.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

<mharris> davej: What brand/model of CRT?
<davej> "Shamrock Tech co Ltd" model C407L
<davej> mharris: it doesn't talk ddc
<mharris> davej: "shamrock C407L" on google turns up nothing found.  ;o/
<davej> mharris: yeah, this is donkeys years old. 
<davej> mharris: its the last 15" monitor I have too I think
<mharris> davej: No DPMS support either I presume?
<davej> doubtful
<davej> no epa logos or the like on the back of it..

A new entry should be added for this monitor, based on "generic"
but with the timings tweaked.

Note that this didn't get fixed before GA, and is still broken

Comment 4 Mike A. Harris 2004-02-22 02:49:51 EST
The proper thing to do, is to add an entry to the monitor database
for your specific monitor.  Changing the generic default is a bad
idea IMHO.
Comment 5 Mike A. Harris 2004-02-22 02:57:25 EST
I've added the following line to MonitorsDB in hwdata 0.108-1

Shamrock; Shamrock C407L; 0; 31.5-55.0; 50-70
