1280x1024 @ 60hz??


In winblows, i can run at 1280x1024 @ 60hz, my monitor can only go up to 70hz i believe...

im on a ati radeon 9600 card....

when i run fglrxconfig on linux it only gives me options for 1280x1024 @ 85hz!?!?

How can i get it to run at 1280x1024 @ 60hz?!?!??

also.... since its runnign at too high refresh rate it gives me a warning, so how can i force x to NOT start so i can run fglrxconfig to fix it IF i have automatic x start on mandrake 9.2??!

thanks!

on mandrake/kde
Menu > Configuration > Configure Your Computer > Boot > Drakboot
here you can stipulate whether x starts at boot or not

might be worth looking at your /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 file
this is where resolutions, refresh rates etc are set out
look for the "screens" section

In your XF86Config-4, look for Section "Monitor" and check the range values for HorizSync and VertRefresh (man XF86Config)
Also you might have to set a modeline for your screen. There are some helpful online tools :

To set it interactively, you might want to try 'xvidtune', beware! It can mess up things if not used carefully....
