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.
