Unhappy bad refresh rates with 2960

Hi all,

i did an upgrade of my drivers from 2313 to 2960 on my Linux box. I use RH73, a TNT2 and a Sony G500. I uesd 1600x1200@85Hz. But with the new drivers i'm not able to get better refresh rates then 75 Hz. What's wrong?

The right Modelines are present in XF86-Config, when i switch back to 2313 i get my 85 Hz again.

Can somebody help?

Make sure that the correct XF86Config is used. On some systems there are more than one.
Take a look at the XFree86 log file (is the time of file creation ok?)
and verify which XF86Config was actually read.

Default Is monitor working fine at tat resolution?

I always use 1280x1024, in Linux, but with and Nvidia upgrade, Xfree.log says that my monitor max resolution was only 1280x960.

I solucioned this, adding Option "IgnoreEDID" "true" in my XF86Config file, in Nvidia section.

Look at my Config file, for an example


Perhaps, with that line, driver ommit max resolution and frequency of your monitor
