October 14, 2005 by David · No Comments · Linux

- Start a Terminal (Ctrl+Alt+F1)
- sudo pico /etc/X11/xorg.conf
- Move cursor to Section “Monitor”
- Add two lines just before the EndSection
VertRefresh 50-160
HorizSync 30-70
- Ctrl-x
- Y to save
- Press Enter

then in the same Terminal

- ps aux | grep X
It will display a number of items…
one will be
root XXXX……./usr/X11R6/bin/X

- sudo kill -HUP XXXX
