I've just replaced my trusty CRT screen with a spunky LCD screen.
After the machine boots I don't see the login window. Instead I see a
bouncing box that says "Video Mode not Supported". How do I rectify

You have to correct your vertical refresh in your xorg.conf.
I had to add the line:
        VertRefresh   75

to the monitor section when I went from CRT to LCD.

That didn't work for me.

When I use -configure to generate a conf file the Monitor specs seem to fit my monitor but the monitor won't use it.

Looking at /var/log/Xorg.0.log I can see that it tries all the modes and says this for each of them:

(II) NV(0): Mode "1024x768" is larger than BIOS programmed panel size of 1 x 1. Removing.
(II) NV(0): Not using default mode "1024x768" (unknown reason)
(II) NV(0): Not using default mode "512X384" (bad mode clock/interlace/doublescan)


(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.

Fatal server error:
no screens found

Funnily enough, when I passed Xorg -config a non-existent config file name (by accident) it displayed the black and grey grid with the X in the middle.
