"out of frequency" issue

  1. Hi all

    my system is
    amd 1500+
    1gb ram
    geforce 440 mx (64mb)

    my monitor is a philips 107e 17"

    I've got direct X 9c installed

    here's the problem,
    was having trouble with playing certain newer games as they were trying to use refresh rates above 60 hz
    thought i had solved the problem by forcing the frequency using dxdiag
    however, recently the problem has re-emerged
    I've tried overrideing the nvidia settings and using dxdiag (put new drivers for the card in a couple of months ago)
    but when i run some programs the monitor flicks up the out of frequency notice saying its refreshing at 75, rather than 60hz

    if anyone has any ideas how to fix this that'd be grand

    thanks

    Try right clicking on the desktop, select Properties-Advanced-Monitor. Select 60hrz and check the box that says " hide modes this monitor cant display". Also in the driver properties and game options make sure Vertical Sync is disabled. I think a newer video card will solve your problems though. The FX5200 is pretty cheap and a good match for your system if you get the 128 bit version. Good luck.
