Odd Refresh Rate Problem

Hey guys. I was running 2k on my gaming machine and then upgraded to XP. I had the refresh rate thing working really nice in 2k.

When I upgraded, I installed the 27.30 drivers and the refresh rate fix. My native resolution is 1280/1024 @ 100Hz. When I change to 1024/768, the Fix works properly, setting the refresh rate to 100Hz.

When I start Counter-strike (the real reason I would switch res), the refresh rates drops to 75 Hz, but I think that's cuz of the small initial resolution. When the game starts, I have it set to be 1024/768, but the refresh rate goes down to 60 Hz (remember, normally it would be 100)! When I hit <esc> to exit back to the main screen, I get 60 Hz instead of 75! Like it has "learned" the bad refresh rates.

Anybody have any advice to solve this? It seems really weird!

Never Mind. The problem was fixed by installing the 23.11 drivers. If you are having the same problem, I advise installing a less recent driver...
