Refresh Rate Problems

  1. Hi I have a Radeon 9600 pro running 4.8 Omega Catalyst drivers on Windows 2000 SP4.
    My problem is that I want to have 1024*768 resolution run at 85hz (as that is what I use to play games in, always with v-sync on) but have 1280*960 run at 60hz (which is what my desktop is).
    I have tried changing options in the monitor attributes section of the monitor properties page in the display control panels however this causes problems when I play windowed games such as Starscape (locks up my display & I have to hard reset). I have tried a program called Refresh Force but it does absolutely nothing.
    Does anyone have any ideas?

    Does your monitor have the ability to run that refresh at that setting? You could be limited there. Try taking your desktop down to that setting first.

    I got it fixed. Basically I tweaked the monitor properties settings after reading the help topics for it. Once you figure out how it works, ATi control panels rule.
    Another case of RTFM saves the day.
