    Display Driver


    There is a place where from i can change the dislpay driver...but i can't remember where from...can someone tell me where from?

    The problem is that my refresh rate is 61Hz instead of at least 80 and the maximum resolution is 1024*768 instead of a max of 1600*1400(1200)

    What can i do?

    i have a CRT model : CFA1797C

    Edit your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file. Note that you have to be root to edit this file.

    You can change the display driver and frequency rates for your monitor in the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf. Be sure to enter your manufacturer's horizontal and vertical frequency rates for your monitor (in the monitor section of xorg.conf).

    EDIT: sorry, didn't saw your post Ozar.

    If you don't want to edit your xorg.conf file, you can run xorgconfig as root and let the script modify it for you.

    I doubt that the manufacturer of the monitor is "crt". That would be the monitor type (crt vs lcd). Can you post the exact monitor model and brand?

    @ozar : yes, as su...

    @antidrugue : Sorry my bad...CTX PR711Fl
    model : CFA1797C

    I'll search also...Sorry for the missunderstood :P

    LE..."17" CTX PR711FL 0.25, 95 kHz 1280*1024ni/85Hz TCO99 Trinitron" what i found
    "17" CRT, 1600 x 1200 bei 75Hz max. Auflösung, 202,5 MHz Videobandbreite, 50-160 Hz V-Frequenz, 30 - 97kHz H-Frequenz, 15pin D-Sub"

    So, how do i edit it?


    Section "Monitor"

    Identifier "My Monitor"

    # HorizSync is in kHz unless units are specified.
    # HorizSync may be a comma separated list of discrete values, or a
    # comma separated list of ranges of values.
    # NOTE: THE VALUES HERE ARE EXAMPLES ONLY. REFER TO YOUR MONITOR'S
    # USER MANUAL FOR THE CORRECT NUMBERS.

    HorizSync 31.5 - 50.0

    # HorizSync 30-64 # multisync
    # HorizSync 31.5, 35.2 # multiple fixed sync frequencies
    # HorizSync 15-25, 30-50 # multiple ranges of sync frequencies

    # VertRefresh is in Hz unless units are specified.
    # VertRefresh may be a comma separated list of discrete values, or a
    # comma separated list of ranges of values.
    # NOTE: THE VALUES HERE ARE EXAMPLES ONLY. REFER TO YOUR MONITOR'S
    # USER MANUAL FOR THE CORRECT NUMBERS.

    VertRefresh 40-90

    EndSection
