There are three editors on the CD: vim, joe and nano. Use any of them. 
If you can't, go away.

As for the changes themselves, you probably want to make the following 
changes to the Monitor and Screen sections:

Section "Monitor"
        Identifier      "Generic Monitor"
        Option          "DPMS"
        # Frequencies below are from the manufacturer's site. Too bad 
that your monitor doesn't report them properly.
        HorizSync 31-81
        VertRefresh 56-76
        # Try VertRefresh 59-61 if this still gives problems. Anyway, 
your monitor is buggy.

Section "Screen"
        Identifier      "Default Screen"
        Device          "Generic Video Card"
        Monitor         "Generic Monitor"
        DefaultDepth    24
        SubSection "Display"
                Depth           24
                Modes           "1280x1024"

Please report if this helps.
