Finding my monitors sync rates


hey gang,

I managed to get a bigger monitor off my buddy.. but linux cant auto-probe it and so therefore I need the sync rates.. I have no manual, but i do have a model name + number

Azura

model name - T17C+
model # - TE772B

I've looked around all over google to find the sync rates but I cant seem to find them anywhere..

i do know that it can support a screen resolution up to 1280 X 1024..

(though I hope to be using 1024 X 768)

if the all monitors use the same sync rates for the screen resolutions could someone please post what those sync rates are? I'm not going to be pushing my resolution past 1024 X 768..

or is there a way I can use winblows to detect the sync rates?

Try the command: /usr/sbin/ddcprobe in your system. If that command isn't around somewhere on that system, try it from the knoppix cd.

Try this

Code:
Section "Monitor"
    Identifier "Azura"
    HorizSync 30-70
    VertRefresh 50-150
EndSection
Azura was manufactured by Empac, which has since been swallowed up by another company. These are the values for the T17B+ ( I think ) but they should work.

You just have to know where to look
