Hi mfaridi,

have you build a custom xorg.conf file? If not, try it out and configure the refresh rates of your monitor. For example, in my case (Asus M6Ne Laptop) it looks like this:

Quote:
Section "Monitor"
Identifier "mymonitor"
Option "DPMS"
HorizSync 30-70
VertRefresh 50-160
EndSection
It's from the xorg.conf under Debian but it should look similar under OpenBSD.

All you have to know are the values for "HorizSync" and "VertRefresh". You should find these values in the manual of your monitor.

Googling for your monitor, I see that specifications are not obviously available from LG's websites. It is reported to be capable of 1280x1024@85 or 1600x1200@75, and most importantly for X, is DDC compliant.

READ and follow FAQ 11.3.

If you are still having trouble, tell us exactly what part of that FAQ failed to work for you, and post your dmesg, xorg.conf, and Xorg.0.log.

I do not know really what happen after I install some packages and reboot system , right now I have refresh 85 with these resolution 1024x768 , 1280x12400 , 1600x1200 and with resolution 1152x864 I have only refresh rate 75 , and I can not use this resolution so I use 1024x768 . I think everything like firefox and other application are big .

You seem entirely unable to post your configuration or logs, mfaridi. Why?

I took the time to track down a manual for your monitor. If you have not already seen these, the specifications of interest are:
Code:
Sync input: Horizontal 30-98 KHz, Vertical 50-160 Hz
...
Resolution:      Max flicker free VESA 1600x1200 @ 75 Hz
                Recommend     VESA 1280x1024 @ 85 Hz
...
Preset modes:

Resolution               Horizontal Freq           Vertical Freq
VESA 640x480               43.269 KHz                  85 Hz
VESA 800x600               53.674 KHz                  85 Hz
VESA 1024x768              68.677 KHz                  85 Hz
VESA 1280x1024             91.146 KHz                  85 Hz
Without more information from you, I will not be able to help you any further. Well, I might not be able to help even with more information, but without it, no one will be able to help you.

What you've posted does not help.

It is only the xorg.conf, and from it I can see that you are not using custom modelines, and, that is configured to use just use 1280x1024. This is not enough information to diagnose the problem.

The Xorg.0.log that I have ask for, four times so far, might show why the refresh rate is set to 75 Hz. It might. Of course, you would need the log from a time when you were running 1152x865 in order to see if it shows a warning, error, or configuration assumption that is applicable to your trouble.

You stated that you'd read FAQ 11.3, and followed it. If that is the case, you would have seen a discussion of the xrandr(4) tool, and seen an example of it's output showing refresh rates for each configured resolution. In addition to using the tools the FAQ already pointed out to you, you might Google for "modeline generator" and try to edit your xorg.conf yourself with fixed clocking values.

Will I ask for your dmesg or the Xorg log a fifth time? No, I won't. I am giving up on this problem, because you ignore repeated attempts I've made to get you to provide the information I've asked you for. You are on your own, now, unless someone with more patience is willing to try to help you.
