    Got a problem with friends rig. Below specs
    The problem is that his screen keeps on flickering.
    He just got a new monitor and it still flickers.
    I tried removing all the drivers and installing them back on but it still happens. Before he upgraded to GF4 MX440 he had a GF2 MX400 and that just crashed the computer.
    He has running off the PSU 2 CDROMS, mobo, HDD and floppy.
    So I guessed that a 350W PSU could handle that.
    Anyone got a suggestion what might be wrong?
    Thanks.

    It may be that vid card thats about to die on him.. Try out someother card and see if it stops.. I have some flickers every now and then on my old Voodoo card to.. A m8 of mine keeps telling me it's the monitor but I'm pretty sure it's the Voodoo.. :rolleyes2

    If it turn out to be the card then your friend should be able to change it upon warranty, somehow I ain't got the same option with the Voodoo.. :laugh:

    Anyway keep us informed on how things works out.. :)

    What do you mean repair internet explore :confused:
    About the refresh rate, some monitors or graphic cards can't support 75 or higher, so that is just making it instable. So make sure its at 60 because that is default.

    60 can cause problems though, that is the frequency of most other electrical things in your house...like your lights, and it could cause problems (like it looks like you can see the refreshrate)

    My monitor is different....60 is the best setting for mine, anything higher and the image is fuzzy and vibrates (doesn't hold still). It looks awesome too (Sony 19" CRT FD Trinitron Multiscan).

    Everyone asks why I don't run a higher refresh, but I show them that 60 is the best here.

    Anyone have any ideas why....

    i have a GEM 821A LCD 17" and i run at 1280x1024@75
    It is clear at 60 but 75 is alittle blurry until i press my auto adjust button on the monitor. The button auto-fit the resolution into the screen with the 75 rr. So 75 is clear just with a touch of a button for me :cheers:

    To repair IE just go to M/S and down load a copy and click on install IE will repair itself. My puter was acting funny pages not loading right, screen going off and on after two days of looking repaired IE and it all cleared up.
