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...

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.
