Hi,
I have a strange problem.
My upper corners are curved...it's really disturbs.
I have a MAG XJ700T, video card ATI
This is my config file:
--
Section "Monitor"

Identifier "My Monitor"

# HorizSync is in kHz unless units are specified.
# HorizSync may be a comma separated list of discrete values, or a
# comma separated list of ranges of values.
# NOTE: THE VALUES HERE ARE EXAMPLES ONLY. REFER TO YOUR MONITOR'S
# USER MANUAL FOR THE CORRECT NUMBERS.

HorizSync 30 - 70

# HorizSync 30-64 # multisync
# HorizSync 31.5, 35.2 # multiple fixed sync frequencies
# HorizSync 15-25, 30-50 # multiple ranges of sync frequencies

# VertRefresh is in Hz unless units are specified.
# VertRefresh may be a comma separated list of discrete values, or a
# comma separated list of ranges of values.

Well, you could use your onboard monitor controls (pincushion + trapezoid)! Alternatively, try reducing the max vertical refresh (from 120 to 100 for example). I don't know about your monitor model, but just because a monitor is capable of refreshing at a certain rate / performing at a high resolution does not necessarily mean it performs well in such a configuration. Try picking conservative settings, i.e. one that results in 1024x768 @ 75hz if that's your resolution. If it looks OK, push it up from there ...

Wow, MAG's website is not very good. I went there to look for your monior. If you have an owner's manual,
you might look up what the recommended settings are. I've never seen a monitor yet that recommended that
max settings it was capable of. Be very careful, I pushed a monitor too hard and caused it to die in less
than 2 years. Don't learn the hard way like I did ;)
