    I have a friend that doesnt want to use the default of 60 Hz. refresh rate. His moniter is capable of up to 90 Hz and when he changes it from the default his screens gets blurry and it loses definition. He has a Nvidea Geforce 4 MX 440 and wants to know how he can fix this.


    Thanks in advance.

    Go to www.guru3d.com and look through the "downloads" section. There are a couple of utilities there that will fix that.

    Michael,

    If a monitor is "90Hz" capable, that doesn't mean it can do 90Hz at all resolutions. In principle, the same goes for the graphic card.

    So, if he sets it at 90Hz, at which color-resolution does he try that? (256 colors, 16, 24 or 32 bit color) and at what spatial resolution (800x600, 1024x768 pixels or even more)?

    Also, what type of monitor does he have? An LCD monitor actually has only one spatial resolution it is best at: the physical configuration of its matrix. All the other settings lead to more or less blurry images.

    What do you mean the "default" refresh setting? There are a myriad of settings that are user definable.

    What type of monitor is it?
    Is it a CRT or LCD?

    Or are you asking about the infamous windows refresh problem while in a game, where if its an OpenGL game it reverts to 60 no matter what. In that case download Reforce, and that will fix you right up. [​IMG]

    cees said it all. . . .

    on top of that though, I think telling us the make and model of the monitor would really help.

    my monitor at home can 120hz+ at lower resolutions but only 75hz at 1200x1200 which is what I tend to use it at. if he wants a higher refresh rate he just might have to bite the bullet and drop his screen resolution.
