Hi Steve.

1. Take down the model and serial number of your monitor - google for
the technical specifications - then see that the horizontal and
Vertical sync numbers set in the monitor section of /etc/X11/xorg.conf
are the ranges set forth in the specifications.

2. Check the horizontal and vertical position and size controls on the
monitor itself. Monitors will change somewhat in different modes and
some adjustment may be necessary.

3. If no joy also obtain the technical specifications on your video
card, and that you are using the best driver for your video card.

Sometimes you can use a live cd which will make a good xorg.conf and
find a good driver (see with "lsmod").

Good Hunting!

Tod
