refest rates


Hey everyone
I'm trying to setup my xorg.conf (manually) but I need to set vertical horizontal refresh rates. I just don't know how to find them.

Any ideas

Thanks

You need to get the optimum rates from either your monitor's manual, or if you don't have it, the manufacturers website.

a retail website selling your specific monitor will probably also have the information. Google the model#...

I wish I could find it in the manual. It's a notebook. MS-1013 by MSI. The screen is 1280x800 vertical refresh at 60 hertz. That much I know.

Is there any command that can autodetect the screen?

Good resources for laptops are:
LinuxQuestions.org Hardware Compatibility List
Linux on Laptops
TuxMobil: Linux with Laptops, Notebooks, PDAs, Mobile Phones and Portable Computers

Just so happens that TuxMobil had a post of your laptop using Ubuntu.

And of course, there's always <Linux> Google

I wouldn't hesitate to contact MSI and ask for the vert. and horz. sync rates.

It seems rather strange that MSI supplies an installation manual that teaches
you how to disassemble the laptop (never seen that before), but they don't
supply the refresh rates for the monitor.
