    Yesterday, I got so fed up with M$ and their glitchy software, so I decided to make the move to Linux. I have chosen the Slackware distro (I have tried a couple different ones including RedHat and Mandrake and decided I wanted a fast, professional one). Everything is up and running, autodetected. My one problem is that I cannot get my refresh rate above 61 hz. I am a heavy computer user, so if I can't fix this, I'll probably go blind. I am using KDE and it's X11 configuration panel. There is no Geforce 4 MX entry in the panel, so I am using the generic nv setting. I have selected my monitor (a ViewSonic E-771), but as aforementioned, it will not do anything above 61 hz. Thanks in advance for helping me.

    Maybe an updated driver from nVidia will help you. They have Linux drivers on their site for download.
