I've done some digging, and I am staring at the screen right now.  I don't 
see any screen settings
that look anything like this (at least in the NVRAM...I'm assuming that's 
what you were talking about)
A few Googles don't show up any other hints on this either.   Can you give 
me a bit more of a hint where
you set this?  Tried disabling "energystar-enabled?"  Didn't seem to make a 
difference (unless I have to reboot
to get that to "change".   Oh, I just saw something are you talking about 
output-device?   I just tried setting that
as you said (have the same card, and that looks like settings that would 
work for this monitor...)
Nope, no  luck 8-(
