Default XP games refresh rate...

sponsored links

 
O.k guys heres my problem...

My native Windows screen resolution is 1152 x 864 32bit with a refresh rate of 100Hz..

When I go to play a game it changes my refresh rate to anything between 50 + 60hz no matter what in game resolution I pick. The flickering is giving me a headache! How do I keep my refresh rate the same as the Windows rate?

Using a Asus GeForce 2 GTS 64meg DDR ram card...

Any ideas??

Mike ( Spagboll ) ..

Mine does the same thing....as well as everyone else's I think. It is just a Windows Xp thing I have learned to live with....

I think I have seen somewhere where there are Geforce drivers that have a refresh rate fix in them,but I could be mistaken...I am an ATI man myself
