I too have the PF790 19" Flat Screen Monitor; adding this: Option "IgnoreEDID"
to the xorg.conf file works for this monitor. I do not believe either of the two are bad. This looks like a software issue for the drivers. As when I added this option everything worked fine.
NOTE TO NVIDIA:
I have used the NVIDIA drivers in the past and they work wonders. I was on FC3 with the latest NVIDIA drivers and things worked fine. I then wiped the system and installed FC4 (yearly clean up / upgrade , had nothing to do with drivers)
When I installed the NVIDIA display drivers on this machine I recieved the attached log output. After little research I found a FIX, I would suggest maybe to have a small script that checks for monitors that may need this option: Option "IgnoreEDID"
