I'm using a DVI to VGA block. Problem is that the previous monitor used IS a real 23" Apple monitor, LCD. But every other resolution tried by the Mac or OS could be displayed by the monitor, even if it shouldn't be supported. So I don't think that's the problem.

I just removed the CMOS battery to replace it. INterestingly enough the clip holding it in place broke off (it feld like it was soldered in place on the battery), so that could be fun to fix..
