    Hello again, :D

    I been poking around the internet for a solution to this matter and cannot find
    anything, anywhere.
    I figured this was an OpenGL problem aswell;)
    When playing games asosiated with Quake 3 (i.e. SOF 2 and MOHAA)
    and Half-life, I get a large chunk of the screen missing on the right
    hand side. Also the refresh rate is only 60hz
    I have an ATI card and I thought these kind of issues didn't affect
    this card.:confused:
    Is there any settings I can change in the game config files to make
    all these games run in 100hz? Or any software which forces these rates?
    Please help, 60hz is horrible and my eyes will melt if I look at it any longer;)

    seems to be something specific to your system...

    what steps did you take when you installed your video card into your system (ie did you do a CLEAN installation of windows with all the drivers or did you just install it over a previous setup and let windows decide? )

    you can set the refresh rate using your ATI control panel or use a program such as Reforce in order to get other resolutions...
