blank screen when set to correct LCD monitor in CentOs5

I installed CentOs 5 on my computer. Once installed, I set the monitor to IBM LCD monitor (#9094). After that confirm setting, the monitor become blank. Does it mean that CentOs5 does not have a driver support for this monitor? Do I have to recompile the kernel or module to get it support.

I suggest you rename (or delete) /etc/X11/xorg.conf and start X again. I've found using Generic LCD monitor works better than specifying IBM models.
