Are you sure you have install "xserver-xfree86", and are not
running a different xserver?  Are you making your manual edits to
/etc/X11/XF86config-4  which is the config file used?

XF86Setup?  I don't believe that can be used to configure
xfree86, on the other xservers, but I'm not positive on that.

For an LCD, use hsync=35-65 and vsync=50-90.  This works for me
on any LCD screen.

Just for grins, do...

# dpkg -l | grep xserver

to see what you have installed in the way of xservers.
