adapter frequencies
Hi there,

When I use windows I can change the frequency of the nvidia card in the display settings box e.g: standard value, optimal value, 100 Hz, 60 Hz, etc. etc.

How do I change the frequency of the card in (suse) Linux ?

Thanks for your effort

Normally X chooses optimal settings for your monitor but if you want to change what X chooses you need to look into "modeline" programming. Not sure if Suse contains a tool to play with that.

Else try http://www.sh.nu/gft.c (hope the link works now)

It is also possible to replace the VSync range of the monitor with a single value i think

Never change the Vsync/hsync range of the monitor setting. Changing it can damage the monitor seriously. He really needs to play with modelines.

As long as it is within the monitors specifications it won't damage it. Saying 75 when the range is 50-120 for example won't damage it.
