comment How do I enable 60hz on my 4k monitor?
I have the A12 bios currently, but I could try upgrading. Checking the release notes of the A13, A14, and A15 updates there is nothing that mentions my graphics card or anything else which I would think would apply here, though.

comment How do I enable 60hz on my 4k monitor?
Regarding the suggestion to check askubuntu.com/questions/147580/… ... I pasted the top output of xrandr in my question - the 60hz modeline isn't being reported by the monitor (even though there are numerous reports of people successfully getting this monitor to work at 60hz on windows)

I am sure I'm connected via display port. I don't have a cable in my laptop's HDMI port at all. I'm using a direct display port to display port cable from my laptop to the monitor.

I have the Dell M6600 with the ATI Mobility FireGL graphics card, not the nVidia/optimus/quadro one. It's also worth noting that I'm using display port just fine with the monitor now, it's just running at 30hz instead of 60hz.

I said 5950 above and I realize that was wrong.. I meant M8900.

No, this is an M6600 Dell Precision laptop with the M5950 FireGL card.
