 In that case I would read the brosure of the monitor; if not available, google
 on the monitor type and try to get the monitor specs from the internet.
 Very often you get the Horiz., Vert., and Pixel freq. easily, or at least
 you get a good idea of what they should be by finding similar monitor
 type, or other people's configuration, etc.
 Sorry, I don't know how Xorg figures out about the monitor specs.
