Horizontal and vertical refresh
 
I'm not sure how I can figure out the horiz and vertic refresh on my monitor. My manufacturer won't tell me, is there a way I can find out from other specs I know of?

if the manufacturer will not tell you, can you look it up on thier website?

My second monitor I got for an amazingly low price, sadly, this meant no manual, and no website from the manufacturer... What I did was used something like one of the live distros available now, got into a gui from the 'auto probing' they do, and then copied down the refresh rates that were in the XF86Config that was auto generated.

Cool

just curious MasterC, using this method, would the rates detected be fixed or a range. i.e. horizontal 30, or horizontal 30-70.

Try checking out our LINKS section.

There is a Link there that I submitted called MonitorWorld.

You can get the info you are looking for on just about any monitor made.

Peace,

Forgot to mention it's a laptop monitor, laptop by Dell and monitor by Samsung. I don't think monitorworld lists laptop specs.
