Monitor Issue

I'm running Mandrake 10.1 on a Dell GX-150, 1 Ghz 40GB. I've been going strong for a few months with only a couple of headaches. I just bought a Samsung SyncMaster 930b, 19 inch flat screen. This Samsung model is unsupported by 10.1 (meaning that it is not listed under Samsung in MCC). I have it listed in MCC as Generic 1280x1024 60Hz. My screen resolution under MCC is listed as 1280x1024 60Hz, 16 millons colors (graphics card Intel 815). However, running Gnome Control Center, if I use the 1280x1024 setting, I get 8-10 vertical lines on the screen that definitely do not enhance quality. When I reset to 1024x768 60Hz (Gnome Control Center), then everything seems fine, except faces appear a bit more red than I would like. How can I have 1280x1024 without the lines?

Maybe upgrade to the new Mandriva? Uh, after backing up your home folder, of course.
