Default Only 60hz? Uhm! Please help!

Hello..

Running ubuntu 10.10, SMP 2.6.38 with nvidia 275.09.07..


nvidia-settings wont let me have anything else but 60hz (unless i use full hd, 1920x1080, i get 120hz). in the resolution options i can select 800x600@85hz... but it only gives me 60hz? is this locked some way?

i have an alienware m17x r3 laptop with geforce gtx 460m (192bit interface, 1.5gb ddr3)

running quake in 60hz, is impossible for me. i need my 800x600@100hz+

please someone help me out. ive tried about everything. with xrandr/gtf, xorg.conf editing..etc...

Added some pictures here, so u guys get the point..

thank you!

By default, the driver will only drive DFPs at modes they report as supported in the EDID. You can tell the driver to drive them at any old resolution by setting the ExactModeTimingsDVI option in /etc/X11/xorg.conf, crossing your fingers, and hoping for the best.

Did you generate a custom modeline and put it in the Screen section?


in Monitor section:
Modeline "800x600_100" x x x x x x x x x x ....


in Screen section:

Modes "800x600_100"
