I'm very sorry about that. Needless to say sensors-detect isn't
supposed to do that. This is the first report ever of EDID corruption,
if that's what it is. This could be caused by a specific uncommon chip
on one of your graphics chip I2C buses, or by a bug in the graphics chip

I'll do my best.

For the records, please also tell us:
* Which version of sensors-detect you used?
* Did you leave the default answer to every question, or did you ask
  for probing which was disabled by default?

I see you're using the radeon driver on a RV380 chip. Do I understand
correctly that this is a laptop and the screen you're talking about is
the laptop's own screen? Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo Pro V2045, right?

It would be great if you could dig your logs for a dump of your EDID
_before_ the corruption. The radeon driver logs this
to /var/log/Xorg.0.log. If you can't find that, it would be great to
find another user with the same laptop who could provide this dump.

First modeline looks pretty wrong, and physical dimensions too. 

You could try xrandr's --newmode option. First run xrandr --verbose to
have the detailed timings for 1280x1023, and then use --newmode with
1023 replaced by 800 (and all other relevant values shifted
accordingly.) This might at least make the machine usable until we find
how fix your EDID.

I'd be more interested in the output of i2cdetect for each but for now.
Also I'm not sure what you were trying to achieve with:

> i2cdump 2 0x60

I suspect you meant 0x50, not 0x60. Please try that and report. I would
also need the (bogus) EDID dump from /var/log/Xorg.0.log.

Meanwhile I'll refresh my knowledge of how timings are encoded in the
EDID. Hopefully we can write the right contents back to it.

Meanwhile I'll see if I can change sensors-detect to skip probing
address 0x50 on graphics chip I2C buses. It serves no purpose, so if
it's going to cause huge trouble on some systems, we should just not do
