    What are you saying?

    You need the driver fro your Video Card. You can get this from the video
    card manufacturer web site. You download it and install it. You can then
    change your resoltuion to any that it AND your monitor supports and change
    the refresh rate so that it does not "flicker".

    How do you know what hardware you have in your computer? Break out the
    invoice or if it is up and working now - take inventory:

    Belarc Advisor
    http://belarc.com/free_download.html

    EVEREST Home Edition
    http://www.lavalys.com/products/download.php?pid=1&lang=en

    Once you know what you have, what next? Go get the latest driver for your
    hardware/OS from the manufacturer's web page. For example, let's say you
    have an NVidia chipset video card or ATI video card, perhaps a Creative
    Labs sound card or C-Media chipset sound card...

    NVidia Video Card Drivers
    http://www.nvidia.com/content/drivers/drivers.asp

    ATI Video Card Drivers
    http://www.atitech.com/support/driver.html

    Creative Labs Sound Device
    http://us.creative.com/support/downloads/

    C-Media Sound Device
    http://www.cmedia.com.tw/e_download_01.htm

    Then install these drivers. Updated drivers are usually more stable and
    may provide extra benefits/features that you really wished you had before.

    Locate and download Everest Home. This diagnostic should be able to list
    out yhe hardware component model numbers/description. Then, you should be
    able to download the drivers from the motherboard (mainboard) or video card
    manufacturer's web site.

    Please explain the problem more clearly. Are you trying to say that
    when you switch to that resolution, your monitor starts to blink?
    Actually, you don't need the CD to install the drivers. You can go to
    their websits and download them from there.
