Default Re: Cannot get 75Hz refresh rate

It says that the monitor prefers to run at 60Hz.
When you want 75 you will need to specify it explicitly in a mode or modeline.

Yes, if the monitor is designed to run at 60Hz and the internal chip 'clocks down' input from the accepted input range to 60Hz there is not a lot you can do about it - it is designed like that.

I have a soldering iron you can borrow

Default Re: Cannot get 75Hz refresh rate

Uhm, I'm allergic to soldering, but thanks

Final question: is there any way to visually determine whether my 75Hz is real 75Hz or downscaled 60Hz? I'm thinking maybe of some kind of calibration/benchmark, which would cause easily visible visual artifacts if not run on real 75Hz.

I'm persisting because I wonder why I see no tearing when running at 75Hz. Could the monitor have _that good_ motion compensation? I doubt.

If the 75Hz is real, I want to use it because of movies. If it is not, I'd rather stick to 60Hz.

OK, from what I have read and reading that link I posted, TFT/LCD do NOT act like CRT monitors as per sec on refresh rates...

60Hz or 75Hz it will still run the same due to the way they work. In fact, refresh rate on a TFT/LCD is not there.
