Hi,
I think there is somthing wrong with somthing in my computer because occasionally(about once per day) when I turn my computer on it is stuck in what seems to be 65htz and when I try to change it to 85htz it stays the same, it also alows me to put it up to 185htz which my monitor doesn't suport and it still seems like 65htz. To fix it I just have to restart the computer but it there any perminent way? I have the newest drivers from ATI for me X1650 Pro(msi) and I'v never overclocked anything in the computer. The card is about a week old only and the rest of the computer is a weeks old except hd, case and psu are about a year. My monitor is a Samsung 957p 19" CRT with 0.22mm dot pitch and the resolution I run it at is 1280x1024 on 85htz and it usually works fine. By the way I have another question that mabey someeone could answer to save me making another post, in oblivion for some reason I can't get up a level. I read you have to get up 10 levels spread over your major skills to get a main level yet I hav level 41(start at 30) on something and all my levels have been gained at least twice but some are over 35. Yet it still says i'm only level 1.
Hope ppl can help.

The tickbox is grey'd out so it let's me chose even 200htz but when I put it on that it doesn't say out of range it's just the same as 60htz. I'v tried all the different refresh rates and nothing works. Can the 7.2 driver do something like this?

No not yet, I might next time it does it because it has been a few days since it has done it. When is the next ATI driver coming out? I might prefer to just wait till it comes out to get a new driver rather then down grading. How often do they come out?

They generally come out every month. I would actually recommend downgrading. The reason is that they tend to put newer stuff for the later cards in the latest drivers...not always, but generally (like everytime I used any driver above 6.6 for my X800 the whole comp would crash when gaming)
