EDID is the information the monitor sends to the computer that contains valid 
resolutions, modelines, frequencies etc... that the monitor supports. I have 
no idea why would the machine freeze if given wrong (or null) EDID info from 
the monitor. But nevertheless, why don't you try substituting the monitor 
with another one (if you happen to have a spare one around)?
