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.

Ubuntu :: Cannot Choose The 'Resolution' & 'Refresh Rate' Within 10.10

Feb 22, 2011

Iam facing difficulty with smaller text size in the latest release 10.10(owing to default Screen Resolution of 1440X900{16:10}).

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!?)

Default 'Refresh Rate' is also set to 0Hz.'Rotation' as well is fixed to NORMAL only?

Ubuntu :: Resolution Refresh Rate Wrong?

Jun 3, 2011

every since I installed natty in march my refresh rate has been wrong this makes it where I can not see the boot screen, this was not a big problem until I installed the developmental version of ubuntu to test for bugs and I can not see the boot screen, I went to the page that tells how to change the rate but I get this error when I ran xrandr Failed to get size of gamma for output default. This showing my monitor as default it does not show a name, I manually set it up in x server and it shows the correct rate and the correct monitor, but not in monitor preferences.

General :: Getting Desired Resolution And Refresh Rate In Ubuntu?

Aug 13, 2010

I cannot get my desired resolution and refresh rate in Ubuntu (10.04, Lucid). I want to run at the best my poor monitor can, which in Windows (XP through 7) is 1152*864 with a refresh rate of 72Hz.

I want these setting in Ubuntu, and many grey hairs have been produced in trying to make it happen. I can get the correct resolution, but not the refresh rate.

I'm using the proprietary Nvidia drivers, which are up to date.

System info:

I have a CRT Monitor connected to a laptop via the VGA connector. The monitor is a 16" AOC brand (this is all I know, and for all my efforts I cannot find the manual for it from just this information). The graphics card is a GeForce 9600M GS

Things I've tried:

Using the regular default drivers Editing Xorg.conf in all manner of ways (seems to always be ignored upon reboot. I don't get that). 3 days of googling Asking at the Ubuntu forums.

How can I do this, if I can?

how all of this works, how xorg.conf and the Nvidia program interact and such.

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).

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 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 :: 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.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Won't Recognize 1920x1080 Resolution?

Sep 9, 2010

I have a serious problem: I just installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my computer which has a Hanspree HF257 25-inch monitor with a native resolution of 19201080. I have an NVIDIA GeForce 9400GT graphics card, and before I installed the proprietary NVIDIA drivers, the screen resolution was fine, but after I installed the recommended drivers, the screen resolution went way down after restart!

The monitor is recognized only as a "CRT-1 (CRT-1 on GPU-0)″ under the NVIDIA X-Server settings. The highest resolution I can adjust it to is 1360768. I have no idea what to do, but I'm sure there's a fix for this, right?

Ubuntu :: Cannot Get 1920x1080 Resolution On Natty?

May 23, 2011

I installed Natty about a month ago. First time i installed, i got this same problem.Installation pendrive works on 1920x1080, and the first time it boot it was lovely.I did all the recommended installs, including ATI / AMD proprietary FGLRX Drivers, and the second time my machine boot, it came on 1600x1200. I did some troubleshooting with xrandr, and was able to get HD resolution again, until i rebooted, and then i couldn't even get it with Xrandr.

This is really driving me nuts. I was able to get it fixed by going into recovery mode, and running ubuntu in low graphics mode, i was choosing reconfigure and it worked sometimes, but now i'm stucked with 1600x1200 and i hate it. I don't want to go back to windows, and i really followed every trhead i found with solutions and can't get it to work.I forgot to mention that i have an Ati Radeon 4670 video card. Also i am a total n00b on linux, i am good at following instructions though

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 Installation :: Bad Monitor Refresh Rate After Upgrading To 10.04?

May 3, 2010

I just upgraded to 10.04 and I've noticed some flickering on my monitor... if I'm correct, the problem is the refresh rate. It is set to 60 Hz and it doesn't give me any options to change it. I would guess that the display drivers are installed correctly because I'm running a lot of CompizConfig effects without a problem Is there anything else that could be causing this problem?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Change Default Refresh Rate

May 21, 2010

After upgrading from karmic to lucid I can't change a default refresh rate for my crt monitor connected to my laptop (lcd switched off). I know radeon driver is trying to check what's the highest possible rate and sets it around 85, but the screen starts to "shiver". If I manualy change this setting in system settings for the screen to 75, it is ok. But I have to do this after every boot I generated xorg.conf and the appropriate modeline (it shows in the screen settings), and I added it to both monitor and screen section. Nevertheless the refresh rate is set to auto again in system settings and the screen wiggles a bit. How to disable automatic detection and force my own settings?

P.S Here's my xorg.conf:

Code:
Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "X.org Configured"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"

[Code].....

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Slow Refresh Rate In Videos

Feb 27, 2011

I've got an annoying problem with refresh rates in everything to do with videos. Basically, anything that requires a quicker refresh than using a word processor. This includes flash movies on a website to playing an offline video. In website flash, the video tends to, well flash on occasion. The other sort of thing is pan lines or whatever they're called in videos like a simple .avi movie.

I currently have the nVidia 270.29 drivers installed for my GTS450 card, but this was happening with older versions. My monitor is a Samsung SyncMaster 943 which is detected. The resolution and refresh rates are sort of fixed on auto configuration. What I mean is, is that I can use the drop down menu to change the resolution to a manual option, and then it allows me to select a refresh rate, but only limited to 60 and 75Hz.

This setting will stay as is until I need reboot or restart Ubuntu. Even clicking on Save to X Configuration File is not a keeper. However, here's another problem. Doesn't matter which refresh rate is selected, I still get the above problems. The same resolution and refresh rate yields no problem under Win7 which I've dual-booted with.

Slackware :: 12.2 - 1920x1080 Resolution

Sep 2, 2010

After 2 weeks of the nightmare that is KDE4 I've been driven back to S12.2 and the sanity of KDE3.5.

However, I'm unable to get higher res than 1024x768. Monitor is a BenQ G222HDL and card is an ATI Radeon HD4760.

Relevant section of my xorg.conf is:

As you can see I've mucked about a little bit with alternative drivers and resolutions and poked around via google without anything obvious popping up, but I suppose the driver is the issue. # randr only ever gives me 'can't open display'. I realize this is a new monitor on an older OS. Should I try the xf86 drivers from ATI, or will running xorgconfig do the trick with such a new card?

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?

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.

Ubuntu :: Setting Screen Resolution 1920x1080

Jun 20, 2010

Monitor: Asus VH242H
Graphics: XGI Volari Z9s

The native resolution of my monitor is 1920x1080. I can't get Ubuntu 10.04 to display at this resolution. Current xorg.conf (relevant sections):

[Code]....

I was able to get the terminals to run at 1920x1080 by adding Code: video=sisfb:mode:1920x1080x32,rate:70,mem:4096 to my grub command. That's nice, but I really want Xorg running at that resolution, and it didn't. I've been working on this for hours, through dozens of gdm restarts with every variation of the above I can think of.?

Ubuntu :: Display Out Of Bounds At 1920x1080 Resolution?

Feb 5, 2011

I just put a HTPC together, it's a MSI 890GXM-G65 RT motherboard (on-board video, no video card) connected to a TV (SAMSUNG LED UN40B70) via an HDMI cable. I've put latest Ubuntu Desktop 10.10 on it. Installation went beautifully, the screen placed correctly, However, once it was actually running, the display is totally wrong. Looks like it's too far to the left and up - there's nothing on the screen except for background, at 1920x1080 resolution. Once I change the resolution to lower, it works.
