Yeah it seemed to do the trick.
One thing that simply PLAGUES my monitor, is that when it switches to the same res, it has to switch (even if I am using that res in Windows), even with same refresh rate, and what happens is it is not a full switch (I hear the tick sound of a res switch usually), and I get a very stretched view afterwards. I have to close and re-open the monitor to get my usual view back. It's annoying cuz it happens when switching to a game or users in the same res!
Now are you talking about the refresh rate changing in WinXP, or my monitor's sudden screen switch stretching that pops when changing to something at the same res?
For my problem, I am pretty sure it's the damn monitor, which I will get a new one hopefully soon.
