building xorg.conf - ViewSonic E70
I'm trying to get xorg.conf set up using xorgconfig, but I don't know what would be suitable values for refresh rate, horizontal and vertical, amount of colors and shtuph.
I'm using a ViewSonic E70 monitor, using a nVidia GeForce 4 Ti 4200 video card. What would be suitable values to put in xorgconfig?
In my previous Slackware installation this had been done by default, but I deleted that and am now using Gentoo, which didn't do it automagically D:

Also, I'm using a spanish keyboard, Samsung keyboard with 105 keys, and I want loadkeys to load the, but even though it doesn't return any errors, it still doesn't apply the config D:

Thanks in advance for all replies :)

These are the frequencies. (which by the way I found on ViewSonics site)

H - 30-70
V - 50-160

So in vertical sync I put "Manual Value" and the HV value you said there, but for the others? I always get "Cannot find screen" D:

Have you installed the nvidia drivers?

Also are you running xorg.conf or are you editing the file manually?

Any xorg.conf I throw at it errors out :( It always says "no screens found". I did "emerge nvidia-kernel", and "emerge nvidia-glx"

Alright, can you post your xorg log file?

Ok, here's what I came across. It was to much to list so I'll post the link instead.
