Force Monitor Refresh Rate
« on: 2014/11/19, 05:35:21 »
Hi,

I'm using a Lenovo X230 laptop with an external LG-34UC97-S monitor. I've turn off the internal monitor and hooked up the external via HDMI. Looking at the user manual, native resolution and refresh rate which should be 3440x1440 50Hz (page 29). However, the monitor is currently running at 3440x1440 29.99Hz, for some reason. I've tried adding 50Hz as follows:

Code: [Select]
$ cvt 3440 1440 50
# 3440x1440 49.96 Hz (CVT) hsync: 74.14 kHz; pclk: 344.00 MHz
Modeline "3440x1440_50.00"  344.00  3440 3672 4040 4640  1440 1443 1453 1484 -hsync +vsync
$ xrandr --newmode "3440x1440_50.00"  344.00  3440 3672 4040 4640  1440 1443 1453 1484 -hsync +vsync
$ xrandr --verbose --addmode HDMI2 "3440x1440_50.00"
$ xrandr --output HDMI2 --mode "3440x1440_50.00"
xrandr: Configure crtc 1 failed

I'm guessing that the modeline returned by cvt is wrong, but I'm not sure how to get the right one. Any help would be appreciated.

I think you must respect the xrandr output, over the user manual.

I think the manufacturer knows what their screen is capable of.  I don't think xrandr is reading this monitor's configuration correctly.

Yes, of course they do, but they don't know what OS and driver you are using.

If the GPU driver doesn't support 50Hz at the high resolution, then xrandr might be reading it correctly.  I am only speculating, but I would investigate the capabilities of your installed driver/kernel module, on the specific GPU in your hardware.
