Assuming the values you quoted are correct, something like this should
work in xorg.conf:

Section "Monitor"
        Identifier   "Monitor0"
        VendorName   "HP"
        ModelName    "7500"
        Option      "DPMS"
        HorizSync   30-70
        VertRefresh 50-140
EndSection

and then further down:

Section "Screen"
        Identifier "Screen0"
        Device     "Card0"
        Monitor    "Monitor0"
        DefaultColorDepth 24


        SubSection "Display"
        Depth       24
        Modes       "1024x768" "1280x1024"
        ViewPort    0 0
        EndSubSection
EndSection

It should be able to run at that ColorDepth assuming a reasonable
graphics card (or onboard graphics).

I think 1024x768 is more than enough for a 17" monitor. 1280x1024 is
more suited to a 19".

Disclaimer: The above shouldn't blow up your machine/monitor but it might do
and I can't be held responsible if it does...I'm just some idiot on a
mailing list ;)
