    The problem is you provided us with absolutely almost no useful information in your post.

    We need to know what distribution, video card, and monitor you have. It does appear from your post that you changed monitors. If this is the case you need to edit your XF86Config file to reflect the change, but we need to know some relevant information to tell you how to do this.

    It will probably be helpful for you to retain the manual from your monitor too. This will let you know the refresh rates that you should use when configuring X. Assuming of course that you have the manual. If not, then google it. That's how I got mine working ;D
