I found this on an Ubuntu forum but as it applies to the Nvidia
Xserver it may well work on Fedora as well.

Try adding the following to your xorg.conf file under the "Device" section:
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT-1"
Option "IgnoreEDID" "TRUE"
Option "UseEDID" "FALSE"
Option "UseEDIDFreqs" "FALSE"
Option "UseEDIDDPi" "FALSE"
Option "ModeValidation" "NoEdidModes"

Hope that helps.
