I am having a HORRIBLE time getting this monitors modelines correct..

i have used videogen's sample file and changed the values...

110 for max horizontal refresh and 160 for max vertical refresh rate

dot clock max i tried from 250 - 350 X -probeonly stated 350 (im not at home to post logs)

desired refresh is: 101 1280x1024 should do up to 131 but 101 is fine.

Config used:

# videogen sample configuration file

max_hfreq=110; max_vfreq=160 # more parameters per line possible

mode 320x200 # process several modes at a time
mode 640x400
mode 640x480
mode 800x600
mode 1024x768
mode 1152x864
mode 1280x960
mode 1280x1024
mode 1600x1200
mode 2048x1536

Anyway, i get about 1 inch of the screen set off the the left, off the screen.. so something is not right. All specs taken from viewsonic site:

if anyone can get me proper mode lines, or help me make them, or even someone that HAS this monitor, any help would be GREAT!
