Refresh rate

I just installed the slackware 10, how do you change the refresh rate, it looks like its about
60hz right now, i would like to get it up to 70-75, the xconfig file has my vertical set to 40-90, im not to sure how to go about changing this, any help i would be thankful

What I did is:

Went to my manufactures site and looked up the following values for my monitor:

HorizSync and VertRefresh

After editing these, my monitor uses the maximum refresh rate.

Did you restart xorg (xserver) after that?

Slack 10 now uses xorg.conf not XF86... forgot.conf took me awhile to figure that out, couldn't get my videocard working. You might have changed the wrong one.

Maybe this is the same problem?

That you need to switch from the "vesa" driver to a more appropriate one

You can always check (and adjust) it using xvidtune. Simply type as root "xvidtune" in console while in X, read warning, and then you can adjust your video settings.
