|I've got a real basic question about laptops and display refresh rates - Just bought the above Acer laptop - 1st time I've ever used a laptop, or run Vista! Looking at some older posts re laptops and refresh rates it looks like 60Hz is common for laptops 'cos the technology's different to CRT's.|
Be grateful if anyone can confirm this is the case, - Just unsure about a couple of things re the Aspire's display - The graphics adapter is the NVidia GeForce 9300M GS.
i) In Vista's Device Manager the "Monitor" is listed as a Generic PnP Monitor - so it's using the std Windows Vista driver. Am guessing this may only be referring to any external displays that might be connected - and not the laptops own screen?
ii) Main reason I'm asking is that the only refresh rate - at any of the available resolutions - that I can get is 60Hz - which, being used to desktops and CRT monitors, seems really low.
Have searched for any other NVidia / Aspire drivers that might help, but haven't found any that appear relevant - Currently using the latest NVidia driver which I d/l from the Acer site = V 188.8.131.5220. Dated 19/7/08.
Grateful for any info
