Question how_to_add_custom_resolution_and_refresh_rate - 05-17-2005, 19:58 | posts: n/a

800x600 to small, while 1024x768 to big for me
i want to use 960x720 resolution and at least 75 hz refresh rate...

back when using nvidia geforce4 mx i can add that custom resolution
(and refresh rate) by using configuration tool provided by the driver
(via "display properties"), or utility like rivatuner

but now i am using ati radeon 9550...

well, actually to get 960x720 is an easy task, the simplest is to
use a "plug and play monitor" driver from windows xp and select that
resolution (my samsung 17" monitor driver does not provide that
resolution), but the problem is that i only can use just _60hz_ refresh

i have tried some utility to force the refresh rate, one utility that
peoples usually suggest to do this is powerstrip. yes, it can force
refresh rate as the "tip of the day" says, but the problem again is
the dialog button to do this is _inactive_ (what thats mean?)

somebody please help me...

sorry for my bad english...

try the multi res tool
do not choose a refresh rate greater than your system will support!
