    hi, i just upgraded from a nvidia gf4mx460 64mb too a ati radeon 9700 pro 128mb.....

    whilst on the old card @ 1152 resolution, my monitors best refresh rate was 75hz,

    i installed the new ati card, and in properties/settings i set the desktop too the same 1152 resolution, and i noticed my monitors best refresh rate i could select was still 75hz..
    but even though it says 75hz in the settings box, my monitor is only at 60hz

    (my monitors OSD shows refresh info)

    any ideas? im new too ATI cards, is there some patch or fix for this?

    (im running xp pro and the latest ati catalyst from ATI site
    wxp-w2k-catalyst-8-00-040322a-014266c.exe)

    thanks

    Go into your Advanced Display Properties (with all the tabs). Click the "Displays" tab, then click the "Monitor" button. Uncheck "Use DDC Information". Click "Apply", choose your max refresh and max resolution, click "Apply" again.

    Woop woop!
