Go to viewsoncic's website and get the specs on it. They should list all the vertical and horizonal sync and refresh rates. As well as max resolution @ specified color.

Ouch man that sucks. I recommend re-running the installer to overwrite your installation. Choose "Generic" for the monitor" and select the safe settings. Then make a backup of the file and change little things at a time. Like resolution, color depth, h and v sync rates. etc. Good luck!
