RE: Samsung 910T monitor setup during installation

Emergency mode should not be necessary (assuming that
it is only a problem with frequencies) and would be
complicated...

BTW, Also, try pressing ctrl-alt-(minus) to switch to
a lower resolution range and see if that works.

Mostly. But also, if you have heard about subpixel
anti-aliasing (it is a technology that makes use of 
the fact that each pixel actually has three phosphor
dots - red - green - blue and sets the color of the
pixels to make letters look nicer), differnt monitors
have different positions of the red green and blue
subpixels and that information is also used.

That also exists. The software can ask the monitor
and the monitor will give it's model number etc. 
I am not an expert on this though... just know the
basic.

Well, to people, ~ and - mean the same, but in the
config file, you will have to use - of course, 
because otherwise, the software won't understand it.
Be careful though... I have read before that if you 
use crazy sync numbers, then the monitor may catch 
fire. I have never seen this happen, but people on 
the internet supposedly have. I have always succeeded
in getting X with tweaking with these syncs.

Good luck!
