comment Windows 7 Pro multi-monitor Remote Desktop software
The connecting client only needs Ultimate or Enterprise. I am currently testing various configurations and the remote host only needs Windows 7 Professional.

comment Changing refresh rate in gnome to anything but zero
I'm still learning how to use Linux so it takes a me a lot longer to decipher what you're asking - plus I don't always have access to the machine. I'll get back to you on this. I awarded you the bounty because you're the only one helping me get through this mess :)

I inherited this server and I unfortunately have no idea which repo was originally used. I grabbed the latest from rpmfind (and installed via yum) because I couldn't find any other newer versions to download. I shall continue down this path though.

Ok I think I managed to install the latest version (found via rpmfind.net). After rebooting, xorg.conf has mysteriously disappeared, VNC clients are still crashing and I'm still using a 0Hz configuration.

After deleting the file, the system boots normally but xrandr still shows the same output. I tried replacing vesa with intel but the system wouldn't boot so I reverted back to the original xorg.conf, however I can't connect via VNC anymore, in fact my VNC client just hangs. I am now attempting to install the xorg-x11-drv-intel package.

Updated the question with relevant details you requested. I also found no references to i915 in xorg.conf or should I look for something else?

Added video card info to my question; How do I determine which DDX driver I'm using? I can't include xorg.log because it's 16MB (and also probably for security reasons)... which part would you like to see?

Unfortunately also not available on my Samsung SyncMaster 27" SA850 (1440p) but will surely help others.
