I run windows 7 x64 on ATI 5770 and in some games like Burnout Paradise the refresh rate is locked at 60.
And I have 17" CRT which runs at 85 Hz and if your refresh rate is below 85, the flickering is gonna kill your eyes.
Please tell me why the hell is it happening??
It may be that your GPU doesn't recognize 85mhz as a PnP resolution/refresh combination in windows, thus limiting the options in game. Check your monitor's manufacturer for any possible drivers. I have had rare sporadic monitor resolution/refresh/freature issues in the past that have been rectified by installing a monitor driver.
If that doesn't work or isn't available, you could try another option, though it really is just a shot in the dark:
Control Panel > Adjust Screen Resolution > Advanced settings > "Monitors" Tab > Uncheck "Hide modes this monitor cannot display"
If I run the games in window mode nothing gets disturbed.Looks like full screen apps take control over my monitors refresh rate.Most of the LCDs run at 60Hz so maybe they assume that I have a LCD lol
Well can I lock my monitor refresh rate somehow?? Some software that actually works. I tried one or two but they didn't help me. I'm on ATI 5870
