I am using an older Chaintech GeForce FX5200 256mb on a Samsung Synchmaster 730b moitor. They are connected through the DVI. The trouble is that I am currently only ablr to use a refresh rate of 60mghz. This is a little tough on the eyes and I stare at this thing all day. The user guide for the card indicates that I should be able to refresh at between 60 and 150, but these options do not exist for me to select.
I am using up to date drivers. Is the DVI some how limiting my refresh rate? Any other suggestions? Thanks a lot for the help.
I have a 19" Philips LCD monitor on my spare PC, and I remember having problems with the refresh rates with later nVidia drivers when I loaded the latest Philips drivers. My solution was to go back to the older drivers that came on the CD with the monitor because they worked better.
That's really the only other option I can think of. Sometimes the monitor drivers conflict with the gfx card drivers.
