my monitor seems to be frozen on 60hz when i change the refresh rate in windows it doesnt change to the new settings

have got the latest ati catylyst drivers for my ati card and i even hunted down the omega version which is supposed to fix the problem

also got dx9 from the microsoft site

have got 128mb ati radeon9500 and and
click here
one of those on the driver that came with it labled cm1997fs

Remove the card from device manager and re-install the drivers again from scratch.

Sound like a corrupt driver and Windows is reverting to the default 60Hz.

two00lbwaster, if you have checked out your graphics card, have you made sure that your monitor is the correct one in display/properties.

Errm - I'm confused. You installed the drivers for your 17" monitor, and all was OK. You hot-swapped in your 19" monitor, and all was OK.

You rebooted with your 19" connected, and you are back to the 60Hz referesh. What happens if you install the current .inf file (driver) for your 19" monitor?
