video refresh is messed up
 
all the time my monitor refresh goes worse then 75 or 85 hz. I'll see it
begin to flicker barely or hurt my eyes then have to reset it. i will set it
for 75 hz, it will be fine, then after a while, weeks or whatever have to
set it for 85 hz cus it looses the 75 hz or something and hurts my eyes.
literally there is a difference and it lost the 75 hz. the same thig happens
for 85 hz and i have to reset it for 75 hz then it is fine again. then it
will go bad again sometime and i change it to 85 hz, back and forth.

i've got an ati radeon 9700 pro also. and it doesn't matter what driver i
use. re installing windows doesn't do anything since i have done that for
other reasons and stuff a few times on this pc.

I have it set 1280x1024 .

Re: video refresh is messed up
 
no, but i don't thnk it is the monitor. i think it's the video card drivers.

a monitor can not tlel software what to do like that.

i have thought of doing that, but am lazy I suppose. It might even happen on
the latest or I am using the latest, I don't remember lol. I don't think i
am.

Being there is so much talk about ATI and drivers problems over the last 3
years, that is the only thing I can think of.

I don't need you to get me a link, i can just go to ati web site and get
them when i feel like it. thanks tho. if the problem happened on a daily or
few days basis then i would do it, but it's only once in a while. so it's
not like ticking me off yet.
