screen freq range problem


Hi.

I have Debian (Knoppix hd install) running on my Toshiba 1800 series laptop. My only problem is the screen's frequency range.
After checking the manual, my LCD freqs are:

Horizontal freq: 48 kHz
Vertical freq: 60 Hz

All these parameters are for 1024x768 resolution.

When configuring the freqs using kxconfig, it asks for a range
for each of the vert and hori freqs. When i give kxconfig a number for each of those fields instead of a range, kxconfig whines. What should i do?

Should i just edit /etc/X11/XF86Config directly and enter only one number (48 and 60) for each of the freqs instead of providing ranges?

thanks.

You can do this but I would also suggest going to the Toshiba website and establish the range from there.

Last time i checked, Toshiba's website didn't list any screen specs for my machine.

I was wondering though, if i just put in single values for each
hori and vert fields, would that kill my LCD screen?

No it should be fine as those are the specs in the manual. I ran my monitor with single values for a long time before I was able to get a range value. The only benefit of using ranges is that it gives you the ability to change size of display. The interesting part is that with Linux I am able to use a much bigger display than M$.
