why are my games refreshing at 60/75hz under win2k
I'm about ready to tear my eyes out because the eye strain is driving my insane.
For some reason I can't make my monitor refresh (automatically) higher than 60hz whenever I run a lot of games. I thought it was some sort of direct3d prob but now i'm just f**king confused. Quake 3 ran at 60Hz (at any resolution) until I forced it to 100Hz in the config files. Simcity 3000 runs at 60Hz @ 800x600 and I just tried 1024x768 and it loaded at 75Hz. Test Drive 5 seems to run at 75Hz as well. I'm not sure because I uninstalled them but I think UT and Rune (using d3d) both were stuck at 60Hz.
I tried overriding the refresh rate from the directX control panel but that had no effect. I'm using DX 8.0a and the 12.41 detonators on my Geforce2 and I'm using a compaq monitor that works like a dream at 100Hz for everything under windows 9x, is this just a problem with win2k or is there a fix or something i can do to make things work right?
