Then we must go into uncharted area, I think - there is a couple of
options that might help us:

In section "Monitor":

Option "IgnoreEDID" "true" - probably it leads to two more options
                             then, according to expected parameters:

HorizSync xx.x - yy.y
VertRefresh xx.x - yy.y

If it doesn't help then adding to "Device" section (see intel(4)):

Option "NoDDC" "true"

should be sufficient.
