Your telling X not to use the EDID information then providing too low a VertRefresh rate in the monitor section for it to be able to do 75 find the proper ranges for the monitor put them in there and restart the X server. BTW the modlines are probably not necessary at all X will use the highest setting possible with the values you give it.
