I have similar problem with my cheap LCD monitor.  Even between

I press ALT-CTRL-F? slowly and hold down or press ALT-CTRL-F1 and
ALT-CTRL-F? in repeating sequence to get monitor sync with new refresh
timing or something.

I guess LCD monitor system convert resolution on the fly and their
tolerance seems not big enough.
