Your device section in xorg should look like

Section "Device"
	Identifier	"Configured Video Device"
	Boardname	"Radeon 1200"
	Busid		"PCI:1:0:0"  #check this
	Driver		"radeon"
#	Option	"SubPixelOrder"	"NONE"
#	Option	"AccelDFS"  "on"
#	Option	"EnablePageFlip" "on"
	Option  "DRI"  "on"
	Option	"DDCMode" "off"
	Option  "NoDDC"  "on"
	Option  "ColorTiling" "on"
#	Option  "AGPMode" "8"
	Option  "DisplayPriority" "HIGH"
#	Option  "AccelMethod" "EXA"
#	Option  "DMAForXv"  "off"
	Screen	0
EndSection

# Try with/without section serverlayout

Section "ServerLayout"
	"AutoAddDevices"  "off"
EndSection

Section "DRI"
	Group	0
	Mode	0666
EndSection


Write a proper section for your monitor with modelines

Disable CPU scaling or modify it (the cpu in question permits a number
of levels)... if the problem is that, then it must be a kernel issue.

MTU is set to 1412 automatically for some connections

This may mean a h/w problem...bad h/w design with good h/w

How does it run on Ubuntu or some other distro?
