From my past experience (using Win-Xp), this particular monitor works only on 60Hz , Best resolution being 1024x768.
I have "installed and configured" Ubuntu 12.04 Minimal (on USB stick) so that most of the time terminal is used, however, whenever there is a need to enter GUI, I may issue
startx command to go into gnome.
However the problem is that on this particular system, issuing this command poses problem because its default refresh rate won't synchronize with the monitor. The display keep on flickering and utterly unreadable. It is visible that gnome has been loaded and default wallpaper and desktop items are visible. But the problem is due to refresh rate different than 60Hz.
I am looking for a command attribute to
startx command which will force the refresh rate to 60Hz and resolution preferably to 1204x768
I can open terminals with
Ctrl+Alt+T and enter commands.
Key combinations like
Ctrl+Alt+NumPlus works flawlessly in distributions like solaris, but it's not working for me. Also the commands like
xrandr -r 60 60 being refresh rate wont work.
The same problem is faced even when I boot from a live CD
