Monitor Refresh Rate


Hey all,

So I just installed Slackware 10.1 on my PC, I have a Dell Optiplex GX1. I previously had a Debian installed and had no problem with it. My problem is I can not get higher then a 61Hz refresh rate when running 1024x768. I am running Xorg. I manually set the horizontal and vertical rates from the ones that are for my monitor. I have looked at the xorg.conf file and I can't seem to figure out what I might need to do. Any help would be great thanks.

look for this section in xorg.conf________________________


Code:
   UW PICO(tm) 4.9                                          File: /etc/X11/xorg.conf

# Any number of monitor sections may be present

Section "Monitor"

    Identifier  "My Monitor"

# HorizSync is in kHz unless units are specified.
# HorizSync may be a comma separated list of discrete values, or a
# comma separated list of ranges of values.
# NOTE: THE VALUES HERE ARE EXAMPLES ONLY.  REFER TO YOUR MONITOR'S
# USER MANUAL FOR THE CORRECT NUMBERS.

    HorizSync   85 - 100

#    HorizSync  30-64         # multisync
#    HorizSync  31.5, 35.2    # multiple fixed sync frequencies
#    HorizSync  15-25, 30-50  # multiple ranges of sync frequencies

# VertRefresh is in Hz unless units are specified.
# VertRefresh may be a comma separated list of discrete values, or a
# comma separated list of ranges of values.
# NOTE: THE VALUES HERE ARE EXAMPLES ONLY.  REFER TO YOUR MONITOR'S
# USER MANUAL FOR THE CORRECT NUMBERS.

    VertRefresh 85, 100

EndSection
As you can see by the 2 lines WITHOUT COMMENTS ( #) these are the acceptable rates for my Iiyama 21" beast-like monitor


Hope that helps

Peace Out


crikey.... I have actually managed to HELP someone, I think, after only 2 days


EDIT::::::::::::::::::::::::::: dont forget, I think ya gotta be su to save the changes to that file.
I found the best way (for me) to edit it is in a terminal:::

Code:
su -c "pico /etc/X11/xorg.conf"
then hit return...
move your cursor to the relevant section...make yr changes... then CTRL+X to exit and confirm the overwrite
