hi
my monitor only support a 60Hz refresh rate- it works fine in win xp but as soon as i try to install linux- ubuntu,pclinuxos, mint it blanks out sometimes i get to the live session ,whereas sometimes halfway through the installation the monitor flickers and goes into standby mode .I have tried safe mode in pclinuxos2007 but same thing happens , how do i limit it to a refresh rate of 60hz and resolution of 1024x768
thanks

add

Code: Select all

Option "TargetRefresh"  "60"
to the "Monitor" section. i don't know if it should be 60 or 60Hz.

to limit your resolution to 1024x768, edit your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file and change the "Mode" lines in your "Screen" section.

read the man page for xorg.conf, while you're at it.
