Attempted to get X setup

Following this:

I tried to get X setup, and failed. The error when I try xorgconfig is:
(EE) No devices detected.

Fatal server error:
no screens found
It asked me some questions I didn't know. Like the kHz of the monitor. I have no idea, and I don't see it mentioned in the instruction manual.

The computer I have is this:
Except it's a 1500 series.

So is there a way to find out some details of the monitor using bash or something?

[EDIT] Okay, I got X working. Still having problems with my network though.
