Question monitor refresh rate

My desktop is Okay on the left side, the right side does not extend as far as it shoould to the edge of the screen though, maybe another 3/8 of an inch, possibly more. Anyway it's quite noticeable and I'd like to fix it. I've tried but no luck. control center>periph.>display has only 61hz avail. Maybe I'm looking at this the wrong way. Any help is greatly apppreciated! I have rebooted to set the new config
Thank You

I run at 1280x1024 my monitor will do at least 90 hz for a refresh rate. This rate is locked at 61hz, I tried to up it to 75hz by putting this into file:/etc/X11/XF86Config.rw2684

# XFree86 4 configuration created by pyxf86config

Identifier "Default Layout"

InputDevice "DevInputMice" "AlwaysCore"

Section "Files"

# RgbPath is the location of the RGB database. Note, this is the name of the
# file minus the extension (like ".txt" or ".db"). There is normally
# no need to change the default.
# Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (they are concatenated together)
# By default, Red Hat 6.0 and later now use a font server independent of
# the X server to render fonts.

# Specify which keyboard LEDs can be user-controlled (eg, with xset(1))
# Option "Xleds" "1 2 3"
# To disable the XKEYBOARD extension, uncomment XkbDisable.
# Option "XkbDisable"
# To customise the XKB settings to suit your keyboard, modify the
# lines below (which are the defaults). For example, for a non-U.S.
# keyboard, you will probably want to use:
# Option "XkbModel" "pc102"
# If you have a US Microsoft Natural keyboard, you can use:
# Option "XkbModel" "microsoft"
#
# Then to change the language, change the Layout setting.
# For example, a german layout can be obtained with:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# or:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# Option "XkbVariant" "nodeadkeys"
#
# If you'd like to switch the positions of your capslock and
# control keys, use:
# Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:swapcaps"
# Or if you just want both to be control, use:
# Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:nocaps"

Does your monitor have controls to move the screen around? Try the horizional position control, and then resize the horiziontal to fit the entire width.

I boot and run two other linux distros on this setup as well as XP. The only thing differing between them is the low 61hz refresh rate on FC2. I don't really want to have to mess with positioning on the monitor. Thanx though for your reply.

Try using xvidtune to adjust the image and then modify your /etc/xorg.conf with the approparite modeline.

man xvidtune
man xorg.conf
