On this old Compaq Armada 110, it has a screen described in the manual as a
14.1-inch, SXGA, CTFT (1024 768) display.

On all the distributions I have run, they seem to select "generic" settings such as:
Code:
HorizSync   28.0 - 96.0 # Warning this may fry old Monitors
VertRefresh  50.0 - 75.0 # Very conservative. May flicker


I have searched, but cannot find and specific values for TFT screens for laptops. Are they "generic" or are they like montiors and should have make/model specific vaules?

Most distros have options like "LCD 1024x768", as does xorgconfig. The Monitor section on my laptop only has

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Monitor0"
VendorName "Monitor Vendor"
ModelName "Monitor Model"
Option "DPMS" "true"
EndSection
