I know they're fixed frequency. I've an HP monitor already as my primary
monitor. I tried modelines based on the specs of the monitor, but didn't
get a picture. I suspect the values given in monitorworld.com are wrong.
So, if someone has one of these monitors already working with a PC, I'd
appreciate if he/she can send me the modelines, etc.
I'll read the above web page and see if I learn more about this.
