View Full Version : 1600x1200 keeps dropping to 60hz, need help

11-19-04, 01:38 PM
On my desktop I can do 1600x1200 at 100hz no problem. But soon as I start farcry it drops to 60hz. But if I do 1280x960 it keeps at 100hz.

Is there a bug in the game or drivers that prevent this. I even have refresh override in dxdiag set to 100hz.

World of warcraft does the same thing. When the login page comes up it drops to 60hz on 1600x1200. But when I set it to 1280x960 it keeps at 100hz.

Any help be appreciated.

Use the refresh rate override in the 67.02 drivers?? Works perfect for me.

Helps if you dont override your desktop resolution either. Just use the monitor tab for that resolution. :)

hmm seems I cant support that refresh rate. Thought I was able to do desktop earlier at 1600x1200@100hz. I must of been mistaken :)
