change monitor, probe, help? - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

I just changed my monitor from a NEC multisync 15 to an IBM monitor 17 and on reboot the system didnt notice that I changed my monitor, it looks like I will be lazy and just keep the settings the same. I dont want to change the resolution. Should I be lazy because everything seems fine or should I force a probe, because I dont know how to do that? Will the monitor fry if I leave it as is. What commands can I use to force a probe of the monitor or change xsettings. Redhat got rid of Xconfigurator, ...

    I just changed my monitor from a NEC multisync 15 to an IBM monitor 17
    and on reboot the system didnt notice that I changed my monitor, it
    looks like I will be lazy and just keep the settings the same. I dont
    want to change the resolution. Should I be lazy because everything
    seems fine or should I force a probe, because I dont know how to do
    that? Will the monitor fry if I leave it as is.

    What commands can I use to force a probe of the monitor or change
    xsettings. Redhat got rid of Xconfigurator, which I loved.

    get the vert/horiz refresh ranges and change them in the Monitor
    section of the XF86Config[-4] file. that should be sufficient.

    Switch to runlevel 3 (boot to it, or as a root user run "telinit 1), copy
    /etc/X11/* to someplace safe just in case, then run "redhat-config-xfree86".
    This should turn off the automatic xdm login widget and allow you to
    re-configure.
     

    It was a good tool, but tough to maintain and often failed badly with new
    cards/monitors. The new tool is pretty good.
