Just so we're clear:
No font 'fixed'; no worky.
Or put another way:
If X cannot find font fixed (or font 'cursor' which it uses for a cursor
font, oddly enough, but that's a slightly separate issue) it won't
start. This is invariably due to a poorly setup X11 installation (such
as half of it missing) or your FontPaths are screwed.
Given I've written about this before for LG, I am not repeating it here.
If you look back in the LG archives, you'll also see mention of another
font article I wrote a few years ago which says much the same thing as
the one cited above, it's just tangential.

See above. Nothing to do with your monitor.
