can't set refresh rate above 60 Hz in fedora!

Hi everyone!

I just bought a dell dimension 2400 and decided to install fedora. Everything worked perfectly and fedora found and installed my hardware!

My problem is that I cannot change the refresh rate from 60Hz (1024*768)! The integrated graphics card is an intel 845 which can handle 120Hz in this resolution. The monitor is a dell P992 which also can handle 120Hz.

When I change the Vert. Refresh in XF86Config and restarts the screen just goes blank and I have to switch back to 60 hz =(. xvidtune tells me that my chipset can't be tuned!

What should I do??? 60 Hz is not enough when you are working a lot in front of the computer... I hope anyone have some answers! Thank you!

The first thing to check would be which driver
you're actually using there ... have a look at


P.S.: Never trust a configuration file you
didn't write yourself ;)
