Fedora :: Screen Refresh Rate 85hz Max With NVidia Card

Nov 9, 2010

I am having trouble setting my refresh rate higher than 85 hz. Any Way to get it to 100 hz?

Tried so far:
- a lot of googling
- added a modeline to xorg.conf
- reinstalled nvidia driver
- tried the screen on a windows desktop, this worked so the monitor is fine

Specs:
onitor: Iiyama Vision master pro 510 (should be capable of doing 104 hz at 1600 x 1200, max resolution 2048 x 1536)
graphics card: Geforce 9800gt
motherboard: p5ql-e
Os: Fedora 13

The modeline I tried, tried it both in screen section as well as in a seperate "Modes" section:
Code:
Modeline "1600x1200_100.00" 280.64 1600 1728 1904 2208 1200 1201 1204 1271 -HSync +Vsync
After restarting X the screen only does 1024x768 max because of the modeline

xorg.conf:
Code:
# nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig
# nvidia-xconfig: version 256.35 (buildmeister@builder97.nvidia.com) Wed Jun 16 19:15:05 PDT 2010

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Gnome Display Recognize Same Refresh Rate As NVidia Server?

Jan 4, 2010

Is it possible to have gnome's display settings recognise higher refresh rates than 56hz, as my nvidia is set to 85hz, but gnome display still thinks its 56hz, and I believe this is causing many programs I'm using to refresh at 56hz. Compiz works beautifully after overriding the refresh rate inside it, as it too thought I was using 56hz instead of 85 but many games aswell as CairoDock as jerky, which makes me think it is a refresh issue.

How can I make gnome know I'm using 85hz?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Nvidia TwinView External Monitor Refresh Rate Locked?

Mar 26, 2011

I'm trying to use an external monitor to watch movies on my linux box (kubuntu maverick) but it results always out of sync. TV-out refresh rate is locked as you can see on the image i've attached right here. This is the output of the nvidia-settings query about the variable RefreshRate:

Code:
Attribute 'RefreshRate' (DeepBlue:0.0; display device: CRT-0): 60.02 Hz.
'RefreshRate' is an integer attribute.
'RefreshRate' is a read-only attribute.
'RefreshRate' is display device specific.

Ubuntu :: Changing Refresh Rate - Screen Too Flickery

Apr 18, 2010

I have installed Xubuntu 9.10 on an old computer.

The screen resolution defaulted to 1024 x 768 with a refresh rate of 60hz.

As this made the screen too flickery I changed the refresh rate to 87hz.

This improved the ficker but had some side effects. Firstly the computer now 'thinks' that my monitor is bigger than it really is. For example a maximised application is now off the screen. I have to manually resize the applications to fit the screen. The virtual desktop in the bottom right hand corner is now off the screen, as is the clock on the top right hand corner.

The other side effect is that I now have problems logging on to my computer. It now takes several attempts to log onto my computer.

Ubuntu :: Cannot Set Default Resolution And Refresh Rate Of Screen

Apr 30, 2011

I can't select default refreshing rate and resolution of my screen. Believe me, 50 Hz hurts eyes and causes headache. Ubuntu doesn't recognize my screen I used to work on 1280x1024 resolution with 80 Hz refreshing rate. 1152x864 60Hz is max I can select in Nvidia X Server and Ubuntu Screen Properties. I have tried changing options in Nvidia X Server, Ubuntu Screen Properties and tried xrandr commands (these ended with xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default. or Can't open display).

Ubuntu :: Laptop Refresh Rate Stuck At 50hz With Intel 965gm Graphic Card?

Feb 28, 2011

I had an old thinkpad x61s laptop running ubuntu 10.10 with an intel gm965 graphics card. When i checked the monitor today it says the refreshing rate is 50hz and there is no other option available. I vaguely remember it used to be working at 60hz when I was running xp, so I googled and searched the forum for answers but came with no luck. Some people reported a similar problem with their nvidia graphic card and they seems to be able to modify a xorg.conf file to manually solve the issue (sadly I don't know how).

OpenSUSE Install :: Refresh Rate An Screen Resolution Not Correctly Adjusted

Jan 31, 2010

Some month ago I installed openSUSE 11.1. It worked not bad, but I wanted to get the newes release of Firefox. So I did an upgrade to 11.2. Yast2 refused to work with an error message: unknown option -s (or similar). The regular updates didn't work also. Then I decided to do a new installation. Now I'm having a new problem: Display settings (Anzeige-Einstellungen) reports: Monitor unknown (Monitor unbekannt).

Possible resolution settings are: 800 x 600; 640 x 480; 400 x 300; 320 x 240;
Possible refresh rates are: 60 Hz or 56 Hz @ 800 x 600
I need 1024 x 768 @ 76 Hz. In the previous installation it worked well. How I can teach openSUSE to run 1024 x 768 @ 76 Hz?

YAST2 Hardware information shows me in Monitor > Monitor > Resources > Resolution: High: 768; Vertical frequency: 76; Wide: 1024
The VGA controller is also correct shown in Display > 3d Blaster Savage 4

Ubuntu :: Natty Screen Tearing / Incorrect Monitor Refresh Rate

May 3, 2011

I'm currently running an up-to-date copy of Ubuntu 11.04, but I'm noticing some strange behavior with the monitor settings. First of all, I started investigating this because I'm seeing a lot of screen tearing while watching videos full screen as well as while the screensaver (lattice) is running. On Ubuntu 10.10 I was able to simply set the refresh rate of my monitor to 60Hz through the Nvidia tool and everything worked great. Now, this is no longer the case. I'm using a Samsung Syncmaster 205BW monitor with an Nvidia 8600 GT video card. They are connected with a DVI cable.The strange thing is, the default tool, Monitors, claims my monitor is "unknown" and will only allow me to select 50Hz, 51Hz, and sometimes 52Hz for the refresh rate.

The Nvidia tool claims that my monitor has been detected as a Samsung Syncmaster and is configured to run at 60Hz.However, another area of the Nvidia tool claims that my monitor is using a refresh rate of 59.95Hz. none of these solutions had any effect. I'm still seeing video tearing. I let the Nvidia tool re-write my xorg.conf file after trying these solutions.

Fedora :: NVidia And Compiz Installed And Working But Screen Doesn't Refresh Correctly?

Oct 30, 2010

What it does is, if you do something to change anything on the screen, for example, highlighting text, or switching from one tab/menu in an application to another. The screen doesn't show the change. The only way to SEE the change is to do something else to the screen, like grabbing and moving the application around, or scrolling the page of a website, etc. If you don't do that, you won't see what's really on the screen, but rather what WAS on the screen.

Another example:

*) say you have an application open with 3 tabs: tab1, tab2, and tab3.
*) Switch from tab1 to tab2 and you see no change on the screen.
*) Switch from tab2 to tab3 and you see tab 2 on the screen, NOT tab 3.
*) Switch from tab3 to tab 2 and you see tab3 on the screen, and NOT tab2.

Or, if you're typing in this box to make a post, and you hit ctrl+a to select all, you see no change. If you click in the box to deselect all, then it looks like you've selected all text still. The only way to see what's currently on the screen is to scroll the text box or page just a bit, or, if you're using an application, then you'd have to move it around on the screen a bit.

As i've said, the nVidia drivers are installed and working, as well as compiz, etc.

Code:
[=v=]$ lspci
00:00.0 Host bridge: ATI Technologies Inc RD890 Northbridge only single slot PCI-e GFX Hydra part (rev 02)
00:02.0 PCI bridge: ATI Technologies Inc RD890 PCI to PCI bridge (PCI express gpp port B)

[Code]....

Also, i did BOTH the dracut thing, and the extra kernel paramter in the grub.conf. So, nouveau is blacklisted. Oddly enough though, i do NOT have this problem when using the nouveau driver...

Also, fwiw, i think that i should mention that i'm not using the "Desktop Settings > Enable Desktop Effects" method, because i always seem to have problems with getting certain features to work, like the background for the cube skydome, etc. How i do it is that i install a package called compiz-manager, and i have it set to run at session start. This makes all of the compiz features work fine. One thing that i've noticed though, is that on my other workstation, i haven't set that up yet, and it seems that is is NOT having the same issue. While compiz-manager was running, i tried to use the "desktop settings" method, and it crapped out and reverted back to the old school desktop. I then tried it again, and it reloaded compiz, and there is no screen update issues now. So it seems that you have to have both of them running in order to get all of the compiz options to work, and not have the screen refresh issue?

Fedora :: Monitor Refresh Rate Problem After Mar 6 Updates

Mar 8, 2010

I'm having a problem with my monitor's refresh rate after the most recent round of updates issued on March 6. When I login after a period of inactivity my monitor's refresh rate is set at 60 Hz, even though I always keep it set at 85 Hz.So I have to go in and change the refresh rate back to 85 Hz every time I log in to my computer.This has only started happening after the most recent updates.I tried downgrading X to a previous version but that did not fix the problem. I have an Nvidia graphics card and am using the Nouveau driver.Is anyone else having this issue? Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?

General :: Cannot Change The Refresh Rate From 60 Mhz

Aug 9, 2010

First off I am dual booting Windows 7. While in Win7 I have absolutely NO monitor issues. Since installing 10.04 I get a shaky unreadable display. To remedy the situation temporarily I have adjusted the resolution to 1200/800 but this is not a fix just a band aid. I should be able to run 1920/1080. As soon as I do this I get the shaky screen. I cannot change the refresh rate from 60 mhz. Again I am apprehensive by posting this because I have been flamed in other forums simply for being a noob and not knowing what to do but I would love to tap into the resources of you more experienced members.

Debian Hardware :: Increasing Refresh Rate On CRT

May 7, 2014

I just got a CRT monitor today, used of course, and plugged it in, pleased with many things. However, the screen is blinking subtly as a result of low refresh rate. This monitor is supposed to be 1024x768 @87 hz and 1280x1024 @66hz (here are the specs [URL]. I only get the following from Xrandr:

Code: Select allfoo@debian:~$ xrandr
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1024 x 768, maximum 4096 x 4096
VGA1 connected 1024x768+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 0mm x 0mm
   1024x768       60.0*
   800x600        60.3     56.2 
   848x480        60.0 
   640x480        59.9

Is there anyway I can get my desired resolution? I can't find the xorg.config which I read about.

OpenSUSE :: Only Getting 60hz Refresh Rate At 1280x960?

Apr 11, 2011

I installed openSUSE last night thinking I'd give it a try after once using Ubuntu for a couple months and giving up on Windows completely. When I used Windows and Ubuntu I never had much trouble setting the resolution or refresh rates and ran my monitor at 1280x960 72Hz, openSUSE will let me select 1280x960, but the only refresh rate I can select is 60Hz...I've tried the default Nvidia driver that installed with the OS and I tried the one from the website, it's a Geforce FX 5200, is there some way to force the refresh rate to what I want it to be?

Ubuntu :: Refresh Rate At 1920x1080 Resolution?

Mar 3, 2010

I just installed Ubuntu 9.10 I have ATi HD5700 and its Catalyst drivers downloaded from http://ati.amd.com

The monitor is Hanns-G HH251 (25", 1920x1080@60 max) I cannot make either "Display Settings" or "ATI Configuration" to show the refresh rate of 60 Hz as available. When I change the resolution to 1440x900 then I can pick 60 (but obviously I don't want that resolution). However, if I pick 1920x1080, the only two refresh rates available are 25 and 30 Hz, causing the image to flicker and whatnot.

Surprisingly, Iam not able to choose any other 'Resolution' & 'Refresh Rate'from the corresponding drop-down menus!?(Click on the drop-downs do not provoke any action!?)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Very Poor Refresh Rate

Jun 5, 2011

I just built a home media server. It's using a Gigabyte E350N-USB3 motherboard with the AMD Fusion processor. So far, everything seems to be working fair enough. However, when it comes to video playback via an HDMI cable to my TV, it's unwatchable. It is okay during slow scenes, but any sudden movement or high action scenes and the problem becomes obvious.I don't know how to explain it other than it appears to have a problem refreshing quickly enough. I see horizontal lines across the film. I originally thought it might be due to low quality AVI files, but I just tried a DVD and it did it just the same.

I'm pretty knew to Ubuntu, so I'm not sure if there are some settings I can tweak, or if I am missing some drivers. Any ideas on where to start?

General :: Set Monitor Refresh Rate In Script?

Aug 12, 2010

I'm running the great game "Capitalism Plus" w wine. This is really a Win-95 game but it runs fine under Wine (a big benefit of Linux, you can run those old Windows games again, which is impossible under WinXP...)

Anyway, here's the problem: The game runs only in 640x480. My monitor is a 22" widescreen 1920x1080. When I start Capitalism, the resolution changes to 640x480 which is fine. However, the refresh rate is 75Hz, which minimizes the actual / active screen to a small window in the middle of the monitor. (Not only for the game, but for the kde desktop.) When I set refresh rate to 60Hz (using krandrtray) everything is fine.

So here's the question: Is there any way I can create a bash-script that sets the refreshrate to 60Hz?

I'm running kde3.5, Debian Lenny on a AMD64 with ATI:s fglrx.
