While playing quake 3 in win xp the refresh rate is turned down so much that the monitor flickers. It happens also in half life. This problem did not occur in win me. What is the problem? I have gone into monitor priperties and set the refresh rate to 85 hz in windows. Can u please help? Thanks

What kind of video card do you have. Sounds like you might have a Nvidia card and need the refresh rate fix. The nvidia drivers default to a 60hz rate in games. Do a search for nvidia refresh rate fix and install the fix then you will be able to set the refresh rate to anything your monitor supports in games.

The problem is with win2k and xp not with any particular video card company. if you have nvidia card, use the nvidia refresh rate fix which might not work with the latest drivers. You can get a freeware utility called multires and use it with any video card.

but multires is free and powerstrip is not. Get powerstrip if you want to overclock the video card as well. BTW, both programs are made by the same people.

thanks all, i will do as you have said. BTW, my video card is a Leadtek Winfast Titanium Geforce 2 so yes, it is by Nvidia. I will get that refresh rate fix.
Thanks!
