Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Have you tried any of the Dell monitor selections? One of those might be a compatible, and or have you tried several other generic setups, usually in these type of cases, you just have to work it up and one by one test diferent configurations.
I am having a similar problem as yours. I entered the info like you did and then it tries to test the settings. Sometimes, depending on what I enter, it will bring a GUI and test it. It will ask whether I can see the message (gets weird here) - if I answer yes there is no problem and the settings are accepted but if I let it time out it reports the settings are incorrect and forces me to re-enter. Once I get it all set and actually try to enter startx it displays in a manner that is very difficult to read and won't allow to to adjust using the crtl+alt+(+). Going to keep trying different combinations. Was hoping somebody already did this though.
