Default Re: Nvidia 8756 and refresh problem

Let the drivers detect permisable refresh rates by commenting out the below thus,

Code:
#    HorizSync       31.0 - 81.0
#    VertRefresh     56.0 - 75.0
#    Option         "DPMS"
#    Modeline       "1280x1024_60"   135.00   1280 1296 1440 1688   1024 1025 1028 1066 +hsync +vsync
(# is put at the very start of the line)

What refresh rate are you aiming for? You can't do any more than the hardware will let you. I would be doing 1280x1024 but my monitor doesn't do that at 85Hz. So I fall back to 1024x768, this from my xorg.conf:

Code:
        Modes           "1024x768_85" "800x600_85" "640x480_85"
