Im from Bulgaria, so sorry if my English sucks
I'd like to ask you something in particular:
I have a GeForce 8800 GT Video Card with 2 DVI connectors and one.. HDTV I think.
I bought a new Samsung B2230n 22" monitor, full HD, 60Hz. To which I was misled that it has a DVI input, but it doesn't - it only has a VGA. My old monitor was also VGA so I had an adapter and it worked just fine. But with the new one - there is a particular flickering which is really annoying especially for a brand new monitor.
The problem I think is really this adapter, cos a I tried my new monitor on an another computer where the connection was VGA to VGA and it was fluent.
So what should I do? Buy another adapter in hope of being a better one, or should I buy a new video card, which I wouldn't like doing cos this one is pretty good.
It doesn't flicker with my old monitor, but it is really old and the resolution was 1280x 1024. I guess there is a difference?
The monitor I tried with VGA to VGA and it worked perfectly. So I think it's not the monitor, it's the connection
The nvida driver has a bad habit of setting crazy refresh rates. I have a 9800gt in my HTPC and the driver was pushing the 46inch TV at 75 Hz, when the TV is rated for 60. I manually set it to 60 picture got 100% better.
