    Hi,
    I have a 3 week old MSI Radeon RX1650 Pro PSI-E video card in my computer and my monitor is a SAMSUNG 957P 19". I have been having problems with the refresh rate and sometimes when I turn the computer on it get's stuck on 60htz and when I change to 85htz it still is flickery, to fix this I just restart the computer(noting permanant). Today when I turned it on the screen has distortion all over it like the start button was in middle of the screen and I couldn't even see enough to restart the computer without using the turn off button on the front. It's working again now. I had the ATI 7.2 driver before and it was doing the refresh but about a week or so ago I got the 7.3 display driver and it kept doing the refresh rate problem. Is it possible it's the monitor? Or would it have to be the video card. The video card is brand new basicly, never overclocked because I don't overclock anything in my computer and still has a lot of warranty, the monitor on the other hand is a 2 or so year old crt. Could it be a problem with the newest drivers? Should I get an old one? I would prefer not too unless I was reasonably sure it would fix the problem because I like to keep my computer clean rather then having old drivers over top of new ones etc...

    Can anyone please just suggest somethiong? Does anyone els have an MSI X1650 Pro???

    Sounds to me that you may be trying to use resolutions that your monitor cant support in conjunction with your video card.

    right click on the desktop, go to properties, then settings, advanced, then go to monitor tab.

    put a checkmark in the box " hide modes that this monitor cannot display".

    then try to pick a resolution that still shows and see if that fixes your problem.

    lol, my monitor can support 85htz on a higher resolution then I have mine on(1280x960). When it does have the refresh rate problem it let's me put it on 85htz and says it's on 85htz but I can tell my the filcker that it's not on 85htz. When it has the problem I have tried puting it on 75htz and lower but it still just looks the same as 65htz.
