Title: lcd screen
Post by: ghartl1 on March 27, 2008, 04:54:16 am
hi, i recently bought a asus widescreen 19 " screen.

i use vl 5.8 soho

in kde controlcentre therepeatmode is set to 75 hz and not editable
in myopinion the item should run at 60 hz at the most
where can i adjust this (in xorg.conf)
the screen is able to run 1440x900, but actually runs at 1024x768. that is okay for me.
only the rsync(i hope this is the right terminus) should be altered..


does anybody has a hint


greets g√ľnter

There should be a section in your xorg.conf file called Monitor or Screen.  Both horizontal and vertical refresh rates are set there.

Due to the nature of LCD monitors, you should run your display at the one and only native resolution of your monitor. If it's 1440x900, you need to use that resolution for the best quality picture.

Hopefully the video driver you're using understands and supports that resolution. You might want to ask for help here if you can't get it. If the resolution is supported, the monitor will look right, not stretched and squashed.
