I just bought a Sony 520GS 21" CRT monitor, which is quite large compared to my old 14" unmarked monitor, so I need to change the resolution and refresh rate:
- I was using 800x600 @ 75Hz, (I think the refresh rate was that)
- I want to use 1280x1024 @ 100Hz
I know my new monitor supports this as I've done it in windows, here is some more info...
/etc/X11/xorg.conf's monitor and screen sections:
Modeline "1280x1024@100" 244.64 1280 1312 2240 2272 1024 1041 1058 1076
First - is this config right? does it have any errors I haven't seen?
If not.... here's what happens: X starts up in the screen resolution defined by "Modes" in the Screen section, and refreshes at the rate of 60Hz, which is the minimum value I use at VertRefresh, and, in my experience, takes no notice of the Modeline.
I have tried adding new modelines, and switching between them (obviously adding the resolutions in Modes too), but I can't seem to make any difference, and X.org gives me no errors... I don't know where to look, which is why I came here.
Thanks for any help
