Insert your CD /DVD and start your computer in rescue mode
Linux rescue

then mount the / file system
chroot /mnt/sysimage

then type on command line

redhat-reconfigure xserver-xorg
just press enter until you reach the monitor section

horizontal refresh 28-50, 30-57(new), 30-65
vertical refresh 40-90, 50-120, 50-140
enter appropriate as per your monitor size only if its conventional
and select 24 bit(16million colors)

memory press 1

test your configuration
save and exit
