I discovered the problem and describe it for future reference: I had the correct vertical and horizontal refresh rate range set for the monitor and X Windows chose the wrong refresh rate for the resolution I was using (ie a monitor cant use its maximum refresh rate at its higher resolutions). Decreasing the maximum refresh rate fixed it!
Thanks for your responses.
