Edit that file. If there is a Monitor section, modify it. If there is 
not one, add it. Make it look like this:

Section "Monitor"
        Identifier      "DEC VRC-21WA"
        Option          "DPMS"
        HorizSync       30-93
        VertRefresh     50-152

In the Screen section, change the line identifying the monitor:

        Monitor         "DEC VRC-21WA"
