Thanks for the reply Fungi,

Looking at your info it looks like your hsync is 30.3 (am I reading 
that right?), which is lower than the default set by the driver -- which 
is 31.  I know this because I tried a host of modelines in the monitor 
section (a file in xorg.conf.d) and checked the error messages for 
the X log.

The problem is a result of the monitor not providing EDID info (which I 
am really sure yours does) and intel drivers removing the ability to set
some user defined options (specifically, refresh rates).

Again, I appreciate the input -- and if I have messed something up, please
let me know.
