I can't, because I don't have any manual and didn't find infos on the
web for my Siemens Xpert 710. But I don't think incorrect values would
damage it, when I set the refresh rate too high in Windows, I only get
an error message.

Did you really mean I should put that line into the device section? When
I ran "XFree86 -configure" the first time, it auto-detected my monitor
correctly, and inserted that line in the monitor section. It also
detected the vendor name ("SIE") and the model name ("Xpert 710"). Those
settings worked fine until I created the .xinitrc file, after that, X
only came up un plain VGA mode. Even deleting X and all config files and
compiling it from a freshly untarred source tree didn't help anything.
xfree86 -config doesn't autodetect my monitor now, and doesn't insert
the option dpms line. Inserting it manually didn't work too. What can
