Disable Xorg Monitor Auto Detect!

Ahhhhh. Please help!

I need to tell Xorg to use the default monitor and screen settings with out trying to detect it. I need it to just use the default setting I have of 1280x1024 at 24bit depth.

The Reason I need to do this is becuase I have one of those keyboard mouse vga data switches that allows me to use the same keyboard mouse and monitor for more than one computer. I'm guessing what is happenining is that the video card is detection the switch instead of the monitor becuase it defaults to 640x480. But if I connect the monitor straight into the video card it opens and runs at the set resolution of 1280 completely fine.

So please. if anyone can tell me how to disable its auto safe check thing or what ever its doing, please please tell me! Thank you.

I'm using Xorg and OpenBSD, but thats kind of unrelated because it did the same thing with Debian and Xfree. Thanks for reading.

nevermind. I found that by entering in the hsync and vsync ranges for the xorg.conf file it forces it to use those settings. Thanks for any who considered this problem
