Windows 98 SE
the video options are:640X480,800X600(which i currently use), 1024X768(i want to use this one, but the screen gets all screwed),1280X1024 and 1600X1200(i never could use these two anyway)/,16 colors,256 colors,16 bit color(high color) and 32 bit color(true color)(which i currently use)
the video adapter is set to optimal but in the device manager my monitor is set to unknown monitor or something like that.but i'm pretty sure that this problem doesn't have anything to do with my monitor, because i used 1024X768 with my old computer years ago and i had no problems.
Please, could anyone explain me how this refresh rate works and tell me how can i change it?
the model of the monitor is unknown even to me, since it is an Elebra monitor, and Elebra is a manufacturer of Brazil that probably doesn't work anymore with monitors.so there is no chance that i can get an inf file from them.this monitor is really old.I tried ajz solution, but i keep changing refresh rates and it just got worse.i had these options:adapter's standard, optimized, 56hz,60hz,72hz,75hz.72hz and 75hz didn't worked with 800X600, so i couldn't change resolutions, and i think it would be useless.do you think that i should change this monitor to solve the problem?
Maybe your monitor is only capable of doing 1024 with 60Hz and the driver tries to use a higher frequency. Try to use Laptop 1024 monitor instead of standard 1024 monitor - maybe this forces 60Hz on 1024 resolution
