Configuring my monitor to use 85hz refresh
« on: May 18, 2007, 10:26:32 am »
Hello. I just installed Vector 5.8 SOHO, and its wonderful. Although I need help configuring Xorg to set the monitor to my desired refresh rate, which is 85hz.

I tried editing the Xorg.conf file by tweaking the refresh rate section and also entering in my monitor make and model, which is a Gateway EV500. The only refresh rate choices I get in the "Display" KControl module are 75hz, 70hz, 60hz, and 87hz. I tried 87hz, and its not kind to my eyes.

Any information I can use to configure my monitor?
