I used to have ATI RAGE FURY MAXX in this comp and all was great, but then I installed Win2k and MAXX isn't supported so I replaced it with the TNT2 Pro card I had in my second comp. now at res. of 800x600 or 640x480, the screen looks pretty much ok (on desktop or in other windows). when I set the res to 1024x768 @ 100Hz (I have LG FLATRON 795PLUS) same as I had w/ the MAXX the screen gets a little blury and it hurts my eyes, although the refresh is 100 it still feels like 75 or something, What can I do? I tried adjusting the settings on the monitor it didn't help a bit. Any suggestions?

*EDIT*: I have a dual boot w/ WinME and there is the same problems, so I don't think its the problem of Win2k.
Plus in the taskbar all the icons look really bad

Here's the pic of the task bar the first icon from the left really shouldn't be the way it is, it should resemble a little mouse w/ large eyes and look much, much sharper
try turning the refresh rate back down to 60-75Hz because the TNT2 is OLD.....also they arent known for their image quality so i dunno is you will get good quality out ofit..
hmmm... dunno just downed the Hzs and no change, I really dunno what to do? Damn card, I wish I had another MAXX... (LOL, can't believe I'm sayin' it)
what drivers are you using? MY TNT2 card was actually a very nice card and the latest Dets. from nvidia always helped out too
I'm using the 28.32 from yesterday, it says that they fix the 60hz bug in Win2k/XP but it didn't and the screen stayed the same
Is your monitor plugged into a power strip with alot of other stuff on it?

My freind had a problem with image quality and it was becasue he had too many accessories on his power strips, moved to a lees occupied strip and it was fine.
Yea, its pretty full there, but I don't have any more sockets close enough. and b4 I installed the TNT2 it was 100% fine
