We're moving towards having X autoconfigure itself based on what the
hardware says it can do. This works in the most common cases. However,
with a KVM switch between the system and the monitor, it may not be
possible for the video card to get information from the monitor about
the resolutions and scan rates it supports (EDID), so you'll need to
supply that information in an /etc/X11/xorg.conf file -- either by
creating one manually or by using a config tool (system-config-display,
X -configure, nvidia-settings, ...).
