Nice to hear this!

Yes, 11A or 11B are VESA codes for 1280x1024 screen resulution. This 
is fine for my 19" CRT-monitor, but I think this code will give me 
again only 60Hz refresh rate. And 60Hz refresh rate is a pain for my 
eyes on my Sony G400. Is there a way to increase refresh rate? I was 
not able to find the module which is now responsible for VESA stuff, 
but I have to admit that I have not done a systematic search. Can you 
tell me which module I have to look at? (My graphic card is Matrox 
G450, it is VESA 3.0 compliant, and I have the VESA 3.0 Manual)

Best regards
