Change refresh rate on fedora
 
How do I change my screen refresh rate on my fedora7?

amani 03-31-2009 11:27 AM

From GUI

Administration or system --> Display in KDE

fedora7 is too old ...move to Fedora10

I tried that but I can't get the refresh rate to go lower.
how do I change horizontal and vertical refresh?

Why would you want to lower the refresh rate?

anotherpenguin 04-02-2009 05:13 PM

I'm using an old monitor and if the rate is too high left edge of my screen gets cut off, only solution is to lower the rate a little.

lazlow 04-02-2009 05:25 PM

That should not be your refresh rate. It should be your resolution. Video cards also only have a fixed window of refresh rates that they can operate in.

anotherpenguin 04-02-2009 05:51 PM

Fixed it!
I just added

HorizSync 31.5 -50.0
VertRefresh 40-90

to /etc/X11/xorg.conf
yeah you are right I could also lower my resolution
or keep it the same and lower the refresh rate.

Be aware that operating a monitor outside its normal refresh rates will damage the monitor.

ok ( I didn't know that ) thanks for the tip, I will check if I'm still in correct range.

Post output of

#lspci

and your /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Usually hsync and vsync are auto detected (you will find them in the manual/monitor website too). If they are not, use modelines as well

check if i810 is in your driver.

see lsmod

or /etc/X11/xorg.conf
