How to force to change the refresh rate
I'm on Suse Linux 10.0, using a Samsung SyncMaster 1100p Plus + nVIDIA GeFORCE FX 5950 Ultra.
I've tried to set the same resolution I use when I'm on M$ Windows since I know that resolution and that refresh rate works very good on this monitor (1152 x 864 @85 Hz).
The problem is Suse is not leting me to change the refresh rate. It has been set @ 118 Hz and cannot be changed, at least not from "Desktop Preferences".
How chan I change or force to change that value for the refresh rate to 85 Hz which is the one I use in windows environment ???
PD: I have already updated my nvidia drivers (just in case this is useful for the answer)

You can edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf (very delicate file, BACKUP FIRST) and set HorzSync and VertSync as your user manual specifies (changing it wrongly can damage PERMANENTLY your monitor)

But I have checked that file, but I dont find the line where you can specifically change the "refresh rate".
Section "Monitor" DisplaySize 400 300 HorizSync 30-115 Identifier "Monitor" ModelName "SYNCMASTER 1100P PLUS(T)" Option "DPMS" VendorName "SAMSUNG" VertRefresh 50-160 UseModes "Modes" EndSection
I wonder why in Linux this kind of simple tasks are so complicated , why you just can select from a combox box or drop down menu the desired refresh rate, so simple!
PD: Gracias por tu ayuda Juan Pablo!

See in you monitor manual, it should specify the HorzSync and VertSync ...

Read the manual or look it up on google
Seems to me its able to be set up at various refresh rates ,try the bracketed changes and see. They wont damage it if its within the limits given
DisplaySize 400 300 (1152 864)
ModelName "SYNCMASTER 1100P PLUS(T)"
VertRefresh 50-160 (85)
