xorg.conf can't set resolution right everything is blurry

i just switched from CRT to LCD and it looks really bad.
DELL 1907FP
I've set xorg.conf according to the monitor specifications
resolution is set to monitor's native resolution and the display size is set
to the one specified in the monitor manual.

this is my xorg.conf

The fonts in all windows and the resolution look really bad. everything seems to be a bit blurry in general.

Did i set something wrong in xorg.conf?
what should the DPI be?

vladuz@box:/etc/X11$ xdpyinfo | grep resolution
resolution:    85x86 dots per inch

Re: xorg.conf can't set resolution right everything is blurry

I had xorg choose a different resolution on my dell because of the HorizSync and VertRefresh's that I chose. Check your /var/log/Xorg.0.log to see if there is any information there. But tightening up those ranges might help.

Try gtf.c, and apply it to xorg.conf

Re: xorg.conf can't set resolution right everything is blurry

the picture looks a little better now. I set the vertical range from a range to a
specific value (75.0), looks better now.
but i get

xdpyinfo | grep resolution gives 85x86 dots per inch

isn't that a little low for a 19" 1280x1024 with display size of 380mm 300mm?

Re: xorg.conf can't set resolution right everything is blurry

Have you pressed the "auto adjustment" button?

You may need a new video card. My old kyro II is very blurry in parts on my AG-neovo f417 but nvidia & ati 9200SE are fine

1280/14.96 = 85.56 - that's OK
