Perhaps try a different screen resolution and see if that helps.

I take it the hardware is not supported in your Linux distribution.

Check that you used the correct drivers.

Consider a distribution that supports your hardware out of the box, if possible.

Gentoo Linux usually supports all the latest drivers available. Be sure to have installed the latest kernel and xorg. Try modifying the maximum horizontal and vertical frequencies in /etc/X11/xorg.conf .
