Don't bother trying. If it works when you leave them unspecified, don't think any more about it. If it still doesn't work however, the easiest way is to construct a valid modeline specific to your monitor. Xorg can actually tell you what to put into your xorg.conf, see section 22.214.171.124 of the FreeBSD Handbook  The quickest way to get these values out is to grep your Xorg log (even from a failed run of Xorg). Eg (quoting from the Handbook) : $ grep -A 4 'Supported additional Video Mode' /var/log/Xorg.0.log (II) I810(0): Supported additional Video Mode: (II) I810(0): clock: 108.0 MHz Image Size: 340 x 270 mm (II) I810(0): h_active: 1280 h_sync: 1328 h_sync_end 1440 h_blank_end 1688 h_border: 0 (II) I810(0): v_active: 1024 v_sync: 1025 v_sync_end 1028 v_blanking: 1066 v_border: 0 (II) I810(0): Serial No: ETL5108015 This information is called EDID information. Creating a ModeLine from this is just a matter of putting the numbers in the correct order: ModeLine <name> <clock> <4 horiz. timings> <4 vert. timings> Heres one I made earlier (unfortunately, not the one from the log, that one works 'out-of-the-box') ModeLine "1680x1050" 146.0 1680 1784 1960 2240 1050 1053 1059 1089 Cheers Tom  http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/x-config.html
