Default help with screen resolution please

ok hi i guys i need some help with editing my xorg.conf file(or what ever else is needed) to run the right refresh rates and resolutions.

my moniter can run:
1024*768 @ 85hz
1152*864 @ 75hz
1280*1024 @ 60hz

but the only options i have are 1024*768 @ 70hz and 1280*1024 @ 60hz .

can somone please tell what to do because i really want 1152*864 @ 75hz working...mainly because anything below 75hz CAINS my eyes.(also im used to 1152*864)

Cheers, Abdul

I haven't fiddled with X.org but Xfree86 could figure out the lower resolutions if you only defined the highest resolution. (Well it worked most of the time.) So the correct way should be to say that 1280x1024@60 is the highest your monitor can handle when you set up X.org (or Xfree86) with the proper tool. That should set the correct values for HorizSync and VertRefresh in your X.org.conf. Then it would only be a matter of adding "1152x864" as the maximum mode you'd like to use. (as you clearly didn't want to use 1280x1024@60)

What distro are you using btw?
