Refresh rates ?

Is it possible to change the refresh rates in Mandrake 9.1 as 70Hz sucks and makes the screen look wobly.

In Mandrake XF86config-4 will over ride XF86config. Before you edit that file you need to know your monitor's min and max specs. Go to and enter the resolution and refresh rate. It will do the rest for you. You don't need to enter the top portion.
