New Monitor

The old monitor suddenly went dark without warning. We went out and got a Samsung 205BW which features an 1680x1050 resolution. However, the on board VIA KM400 video card of my machine does not find any of the modelines gathered by DDC and refused to run at the optimal resolution. Luckily this post by Hendrik on the userforum at openchrome.org saved the day. The modeline mentioned on the page simply worked for me as posted. Many thanks to Hendrik!
