i'm amazed you got that far! you don't have a Monitor section at all. i.e.

Section "Monitor"
        Identifier      "Generic Monitor"
        Option          "DPMS"
        HorizSync       28-51
        VertRefresh     43-60


Section "Screen"
        Identifier      "Default Screen"
        Monitor         "Generic Monitor"
        DefaultDepth    24

i may be behind the times and monitor sections are now optional... but i have
never lacked one and i have not had problems either.
