I have a laptop computer, containing a GeForce 9600M GS, using an external CRT (eek!) monitor, running the latest release of Ubuntu(64 bit) - up to date with updates.
I also installed the NVIDIA driver via.
System -> Administration -> Hardware Drivers
Currently, the Hardware Drivers interface tells me that the green-lighted "Activated and currently in use" driver is:
"NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver (version current) [Recommended]"
System -> Administration -> NVIDIA X Server Settings
then clicking the
X Server Display Configuration
tab, i see the following, under the Display sub-tab:
Where it says 60Hz, in other operating systems I can have up to 72 Hz. 60 Hurts my eyes a little, and I'd like 72 as the monitor and card can support (under the same resolution!).
Can I allow the 72Hz under these settings to be selected, as I can in other operating systems, and if so how can I do that?
Please keep things simple for me, whilst I'm a technical person Linux is not familiar to me.
