Significance of display settings
This mail is about display setting terminologies. I am interested to know the meaning and significance of few screen display settings. Hence, I request you to kindly shed some light on the following questions which I have in mind:
a. What is horizontal frequency and what is its significance?
b. What is vertical frequency and what is its significance?
c. I have heard that few monitors (like IBM E74) have resolution of 1024x768 and 85Hz. What does this 85Hz depict (horizontal/vertical)?
d. I have Ubuntu 10.04 installed on my Lenovo laptop T400. What should I do to set my screen display settings to 1024x768 and 85Hz resolution? How will I know if my monitor supports 85Hz frequency or not.
