not complaining, just noting the fact):

Assuming your surmise is correct, using something like the following
in the Monitor section of your X server configuration file (X.org or
XFree86, depending) _ought_ to do the trick (but for the caveat below):

        HorizSync    48.0 - 65.0
        VertRefresh  60.0 - 75.0

Those are taken from a different ThinkPad (T42p) where X is running

I'd have posted that earlier, but you also said:
