X configuratin


Hi there. I installed Slack Linux on my computer and I have some problem with my X server. On the same computer, in Windows, my monitor can work at 85Hz refresh rate but in Linux itís impossible. My video card is NVIDIA and I found a driver for Linux but itís still impossible to set my refresh rate more than 60Hz. It is very uncomfortable. It is possible in Linux to set my refresh rate at same value like in Win? Thanks.

Good morning,

Yes it is possible and simple.
Open an editor and edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Look for the words HorizSync and VertRefresh in the "Monitor" section.
Put the right values there (from your monitor specs (can be found on google or perhaps somewhere in windows))
restart your X server (ctrl+alt+backspace)

You're done.
Have a nice day.

Thanks! My xorg.conf looks like this

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "My Monitor"
HorizSync 31.5 - 50.0
VertRefresh 40.0 - 90.0
EndSection

I know that in windows vertical refresh is set at 85Hz but I don't know the horizontal sync. rate.
Can I put at:
HorizSync 40
VertRefresh 85?

I'm afraid to don't broke my monitor ...

In the Monitor section of the xorg.conf file, just put that :

HorizSync 30.0 - 95.0
VertRefresh 50.0 - 200.0
