 Distorted/Wavy screen part 2 Post a Reply  
From: Talisha on 12/06/2002
I fixed the distorted screen by using a 60hz refresh rate but I liked the "optimal" refresh rate that I had two days ago much better. Why doesn't the optimal refresh rate work any more? I got a warning before selecting the 60hz refresh rate that the wrong refresh rate may damage your screen. The 60hz refresh rate is a little tiring on the eyes. What can I do to get back to the optimal refresh rate without having the distorted/wavy lines on the top of the screen?

Thanks again,

Windows always gives that warning. Usually Windows XP will show recommended settings as the only options unless you tell it to show all options.

This is usually as sign that it is near time for a new monitor. I am not sure if it is new or not. If it is new, you may consider returning the monitor and telling them the problem that you are having.

In addition, it is entirely possible that your video card is also causing the problem. It is less likey than your monitor but still a possiblity. You may try the higher refresh rate and then push back your graphics acceleration/color bit size/resolution.
