Solved [SOLVED] Resolution and VertRefresh

Hi all,

I have bought a new 27" display and I have issues to set the correct vertical refresh rate. The correct max resolution of 2560x1440 is detected correctly but the VertRefresh rate is not set properly. It is set to 60 Hz instead of 30 Hz. I cannot adjust it using the Gnome2 app for screen resolution.

Could anybody help me to set the correct paramenters in /etc/X11/xorg.conf?

Attached extracts from /etc/X11/xorg.conf and /var/log/Xorg.0.log:

Code:
Section "Monitor"
        Identifier   "Monitor0"
        VendorName   "Monitor Vendor"
        ModelName    "Monitor Model"
EndSection

        Identifier  "Card0"
        Driver      "nvidia"

        BoardName   "G92 [GeForce 8800 GTS 512]"
        BusID       "PCI:1:0:0"
EndSection

        Identifier "Screen0"

Re: Resolution and VertRefresh

You could try setting the VertRefresh by hand in the Monitor section. Apparently EDID doesn't get the correct frequencies.

Code:
Section "Monitor"
        Identifier   "Monitor0"
        VendorName   "Monitor Vendor"
        ModelName    "Monitor Model"
        VertRefresh 29-61
EndSection

Re: Resolution and VertRefresh

Use
Code:
VertRefresh 29-35
But that still may not work.

Re: Resolution and VertRefresh

I found a solution after doing some research on the internet: http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=70068

Just added following line to the screen section in /etc/X11/xorg.conf: Modes "2560x1440_30"
Code:
Section "Screen"
    Identifier     "Screen0"
    Device         "Card0"
    Monitor        "Monitor0"
    SubSection     "Display"
        Viewport    0 0
        Depth       24
        Modes      "2560x1440_30"
    EndSubSection
EndSection
