Vid Card with high enough refresh rate for 64-inch screen?

Q: Vid Card with high enough refresh rate for 64-inch screen?

I can disply my Apple MacBook Pro on my 64-inch TV screen. But the MB Pro has refresh only to 60 Hz. On the big screen this causes very noticeable flicker. What computer box or video card would I need to produce a disply on 64-inch at high enough refresh rate? (not sure what will be high enough). (Am using HDMI of course).

Thanks very much for any help!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Ever since I retired my huge CRT monitor, I have been very unsatisfied with the performance of my 75Hz maximum LED monitor. Don't get me wrong, it's great for movies and everyday use, but for gaming it has done nothing but leave me yearning for something with a higher refresh rate.

I see that there are 120Hz 3D 'gaming' LEDs and have been poking around these waters. I have heard from sources that Benq used to make one of the best 120Hz monitors, but has since been discontinued. So have others, as I see them as 'unavailable' on NewEgg or insanely high priced elsewhere. Are these 120hz 3D monitors a bad idea to purchase? Are there any other options? I can't stand 75Hz in-game any longer!

A:High Refresh Rate LCD/LED Monitors For Gaming

One thing I know for certain is that you'll need a graphics card capable of pushing 120FPS as well or you'll suffer tearing @ 120hz. Then there's Vsync too. Personally I think the whole 3d stuff is gimmicky but the 120HZ is good for day to day use ... just that you'll need good dual GPU setup or very high end cards ... waste IMO.

What is Screen Refresh Rate and what is the recommended Hertz I should set it at? Mine right now is at 60 Hertz.

A:Screen Refresh Rate?

Refresh rate is the number of times that the image on the display is drawn each second.
Say your CRT monitor has a refresh rate of 72 Hertz (Hz), then it cycles through all the pixels from top to bottom 72 times a second.
Refresh rates are very important because they control flicker, and you want the refresh rate as high as possible. Too few cycles per second and you will notice a flickering, which can lead to headaches and eye strain.

What do you keep your screen resolution at?

The refresh rate for my monitor (Acer v223) is 60Hz.

In the display ... Monitor window, 59Hz was selected by Windows 7 when detecting the hardware. 60Hz is available as an option (with the modes that this monitor cannot display hidden).

-- is there any problem running at 59Hz (no gaming needed)?
-- should I change it to 60Hz?

[PS Should this be the Hardware & Devices forum?]

A:Q; Screen Refresh Rate: 59 or 60Hz

Hi DarkStar

Screen Refresh Rate - Custom for NVIDIA Brand

Microsoft answer:

Certain monitors report a TV-compatibility timing of 59.94Hz. Therefore, Windows 7 exposes two frequencies, 59Hz and 60Hz, for every resolution that is supported at that timing. The 59Hz setting makes sure that a TV-compatible timing is always available for an application such as Windows Media Center. The 60Hz setting maintains compatibility for applications that expect 60Hz.

In Windows 7, when a user selects 60Hz, the OS stores a value of 59.94Hz. However, 59Hz is shown in the Screen refresh rate in Control Panel, even though the user selected 60Hz.

I just got my X1800XT and there is a problem with the refresh rate, my monitor is capable of 85 hertz in 1280x960, but it stays at 60, even tough it says its running at 85, also, it doesn't detect the limit as it used to, now i can go all the way to 200 hertz, even tough whatever I do it still stays at 60. I installed the drivers of my monitor but it doesn't seem to change anything, as it still read it as a "default monitor". I don't know what to do please help, I dont want to return that awesome card.

Hi. I have a CTX Ultra monitor and a Trident 3D card. Problem is that the screen seems to have a constant, faint flicker. Especially when bright.

I have tried to find the refresh rate but can't seem to fond where it lives. I have looked in Device Manager, Display Adapters resource tab - and Monitor, no resource tab.

I am using W-95 950b with proper updates and the CPU is a local build with a 333P2. It doesn't matter what software I'm using or if I'm on the web. Could it be that I can't adjust the refresh rate?

A:Black screen after changing refresh rate

Hi Pot
Welcome to Techspot.

Is there an auto button on your monito? Try turning the monitor off then back on and also try hitting the auto button. Sometimes this resets the monitor.

Do you have integrated graphics on your mobo? If you do unplug the graphics card plug your monitor onto you mobo and try rebooting.

You should be able to uninstall the graphics drivers and ATI Catalyst Center.

This should re-set the monitor for you and correct the refresh rate. Once uninstalled plug the graphics card back in re-install the software and see if that corrects the problems.

Hope this helps

I have a 17-inch Toshiba laptop with a resolution of 1600x900 and a refresh rate of 60 Hz. However, on some backgrounds, I can clearly see my screen flickering. With the preservation of my eyes in mind, it would be greatly beneficial to know if I can increase this or not. I go here:

Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Display\Screen Resolution

and click "Advanced Settings". Under "Monitor Settings", the pull-down bar only gives me the option of 60Hz (the "Hide modes that this monitor cannot display" is whited out). Is it possible to increase the refresh rate?

EDIT: I have a generic PnP monitor on Intel HD graphics
EDIT#2: I just noticed the similar threads section at the bottom, and found that LCD monitors are supposed to be 60 Hz. But then how do I reduce the flicker?

A:How to increase screen refresh rate (won't go past 60Hz)

To my knowledge LCD screens shouldn't flicker at all regardless of the refresh rate? They don't refresh, the pixel is either on or off. How old is this laptop? Maybe your back light is failing? Other than that, without being able to see what you see, its hard to comment?

My computer changed the screen resolution by itself for some reason, this is the second time that it does that. I managed to fix it the first time by changing monitor settings/drivers (followed this tutorial: Generic Non pnp Monitor Fix) but I am unable to fix it now.

The screen resolution was 1920x1080 earlier and I got it back to that but the screen is blurry and shaking which is extremely annoying and I already have headache.

I noticed that I miss 60Hz refresh rate and suspect that it could be the issue:

When using 1600x1200 or anything below that, the screen isn't blurry and doesnt shake.

I formatted the HDD on this computer and re-installed XP on it. It seems fine, except for one problem.

When viewing webpages (with any browser, such as IE or Firefox) it has what seems to be a terrible refresh rate. If I scroll down, it takes about 3 entire seconds to redrew the window. It's so bad, I can see the "refresh" scroll up replacing the page with the new content. As far as I can tell, this isn't a problem with Windows Explorer windows. It's really slow in this case.

Any idea why?

A:Bad refresh rate?

Since windows was re-installed the thing that has to be done is to install all of the special drivers like chipset, buss, network, audio, video and others, they can be installed in any order you wish and can be found on the system recovery disk set for the computer if it is an OEM like Compaq, Dell etc. or if you do not have a recovery disk set the drivers can be found on the manufacturers web site for either the motherboard or the manufacturer of the computers web site. You can download these drivers and burn to a CD-R and then install those following instructions to reboot when asked.

When i format , the default is 4096.


A:What is refresh rate?

The refresh rate is how fast your screen refreshes. So the higher the better, which means that it will update the screen at 60 hz. I don't know exactly how fast that is, but its roughly the standard.

Allocation size is the HDD RAM I believe. Its what the system uses when it runs out of RAM. It is much slower, but keeps the system going.

I just replaced the CRT to a 19" LCD monitor and now adjusting the settings to best suit my eyes.

Staring at the monitor more than 8 hours a day sometimes strain my eyes, so I want to ask how I should set the screen resolution and the screen refresh rate.
The manufactures' recommended resolution is 1440 x 900 but the refresh rate is maxed at 60. If I select 1280 x 800, refresh rate goes up to 75 Hertz.

Are LCD the same as CRT when it comes to screen refresh rate Hertz? My main concern is my eyes.

Thanks for your time.

A:CRT Refresh Rate same as LCD Refresh Rate?

At least the blinking and hor. lines and stuff like that, which were a problem on CRTs, do not apply on LCDs. I hear. So, you could propably just set it at 1280x800 @ 60 Hz.

Your card is my card, almost to a T. My card sucked also, until I got omega drivers and cool bits. I let cool bits overclock the card after I installed the omega drivers. If you do it, let cool bits auto detect the settings. The driver number is 14523a for whatever OS you are running.
Mine still isn't the greatest, but she is clocking and playing games MUCH better.
Might want to give it a whirl. Also, if you don't want to reset it on every start up, check the box that says apply on start up.
Refresh rate, 100 worked for me.
P.S. You can't overclock with nvidia drivers unless you reset it everytime you reboot.

A:Monitor refresh rate

hi llama91

Your screen is only capable of a 60Hz refresh rate and therefore when it loads Windows it wont be able to load at 75Hz (the amount you've changed it to). You'll have to connect a monitor that IS capable of allowing that refresh rate and then revert it back to 60Hz once started up. I'm pretty sure you'd be able to disable the drivers (and then enable them again once you've set the refresh rate back) through Command Prompt as well but I must admit I'm not sure of how that's done.

I was wondering can i override refresh rate when playing games. I have LCD 19 inch monitor, and my refresh rate is 60Hz when playing games. Its really anoying, and my eyes are falling apart. Before i could override refresh rate in ATi control panel, but now i have nvidia and i can't find that option.

if the refresh rate on the monitor is 60Hz then on you cant make it go above 60Hz. in the game your playing you might be able the turn V- sync off in the game opinions

Is there a way to change the refresh rate on my online Gmail account? It refreshes every 2 minutes, slowing down my already slow connection, I usually just end up closing it and checking it later. I have checked the settings on my account but haven't seen any of of changing it. I'm using FireFox, and I don't thing FF is doing the refreshing because gmail is the only site that refreshes.

just wondered what the reccomended refresh rate is for LCD widescreen monitors, as i have just bought a 20". On my old 17" CRT screen i always had the refresh rate at 75 hertz as my eyes could not stand 60 hertz. I now have the refresh rate set to 75 hertz on my new monitor, but was wondering if that was correct for a LCD widescreen monitor???

thanks in advance

Is there a way for me to get a higher refresh rate on my monitor other than the 60 hz I now have? I've attached a screenshot, showing that there's no other option (in the pulldown menu) other than 60 hz. But, is there somehow a way for me to CONFIGURE a higher refresh rate other than 60? (Windows 7 Pro, 64-bit OS)

A:Higher refresh rate?

From the manual:

VGA input
D-Sub 15-pin terminal
E-EDID compliant
Suggested scan rates:640?480 /60 Hz, 800?600 /60 Hz, 1024?768 /60 Hz, 1360?768 /60 Hz

There is no mention of whether or not higher frame refresh rates are supported, and forcing a higher rate may result in damage.

Does setting your video driver application, like in ATI tool, to override 60hz default to a higher rate while playing 3d games make any difference? Either in speed or looks? I have been trying it different ways and then benchmarking and if anything it seems that forcing a higher refresh rate might help the speed a little.

does anyone know if all this matters much? thanks

A:refresh rate override

Setting the refresh rate to higher than 60 Hz allows for a higher frame rate (especially with Vsync enabled); when benchmarking vsync should be disabled - that way refresh rate won't have any effect on performance.

Higher refresh rates are also better for your eyes (Well, some people - like myself) are sensitive to anything below 85Hz).

whats the difference between frames per second in games and refresh rate on monitors?

A:frames per second and refresh rate

Frames per second fps is the actual amount of frames the video card will redraw

Refresh rate is the actual frames per second the monitor will redraw.

A problem arises when the refresh rate is lower the the fps thus limiting the video card to perform slower as it has to wait for the monitor to draw the frames.

I have a laptop, not a desktop, and it has a 60hz refresh rate and I believe a 120hz refresh rate is better for most games. So I'm thinking to buy a monitor that has a 120hz refresh rate or more and just plug in using the VGA cable.

So let's say I have a 120hz monitor, will my laptop now has a 120hz refresh rate or does it still remain original, i.e 60hz ?

A:Monitor refresh rate

Hi. I suspect the laptop will still run at a max of 60 Hz but it is possible to get a monitor to run at 120 Hz (the LCD screen in the monitor has a native resolution of 120Hz) no matter what it is set to when the signal is fed to it it would be upscaled and that can cause some weird issues. Frankly you really need a super high end video card costing somewhere near the whole laptop and a fast PC to run games at the rate a 120Hz monitor would be really useful without seeing artefacts and stuff that makes your head spin.

Hi, can anyone explain if there is any relation between fps and refresh rate of a monitor?

A:Relation between fps and refresh rate

Refresh rate is the number of times your monitor can refresh the screen per second, and FPS is how many frames per second your PC is outputting.

It means that if your monitor is 60hz, it can display up to 60 FPS, and not above. But will not affect the systems performance directly, and just means that if your system is outputting 67 fps, then your monitor will not be able to show all those frames, and you will need to turn Vsync on in your games.

Anyway what happens is, several games I have cause my monitor to blank out when I load them up fullscreen. On my old CRT monitor, I get a "signal out of range".

Bought a 512MB stick of PC133 SDRAM recently but found out that its refresh rate is different from my existing PC133 SDRAM.

Is having different refresh rates a problem?

AIDA32 reports 15.625 us (normal) refresh rate on my existing RAM, and 7.8 us (reduced) refresh rate on the new - that's the only difference I could see.

If it is a problem, is there any way I can adjust the refresh rate?

Hey Everyone,

I'm having problems with my monitor having scanlines across the top of it and I was going to try something out with the adapter refresh rate settings. I'm hoping it'll make the scanlines go away. However, when I tried changing the rate to 60Hz I get a warning that says something along the lines of if I change the rate it might cause my monitor to not work properly or to cause something to go very wrong. It also said to only change it if you knew what Hz my adapter/monitor was compatible with. How do I find out which settings I can adjust it to? Right now it's set to Optimal. Thank you in advance.

A:Adapter Refresh Rate

If your monitor is a standard CRT monitor it should run on 60 hz without a problem.

When you say it has "scanlines" across the top? does your monitor have a slightly bright look to it. are these lines say small red or green lines that apear to be about the same distance apart from each other, probably about 1/4 inch.

if so your "backlight" brightness for a lack of better terms is set way to high and thats your problem, I dont recommend doing this but you can adjust your brightness by removing the case on it and you will have a POT, variable resistor, actually you will have up to possibly 10 depending on what type/model the monitor is, you will be able to adjust these with a screwdriver. You can play around with them to find which one is the correct one, but for a non technical person, and for most that are avid pc modders I still do not recommend doing this... if you touch the flyback,(produces above 150k voltes depending on make/model can lay an ***** whipping you.

A:refresh rate on monitor

More than likely the refresh rates are to high not to low.. To fix it, press F8 while booting and choose to boot into safe mode.. When in safe mode enter the display properties and set the display to 640 X 480 and the color depth as high as it'll go. Reboot and the adaptor should default back to the default 60hz refresh rate, you can then further adjust your adaptor settings through the display property settings.

(Right click on the desktop and select properties to enter the display settings, click the settings tab to alter the color depth or resolution and click the advanced button under settings tab, then the monitor tab to change the refresh rate.. If you set the refresh rate to high it can damage your monitor or make it not work correctly)

A:Solved: HELP refresh rate ,?

Boot to safe mode by tapping the F8 key when you power up the machine. Just tap it at one second intervals until you get the option of safe mode. If you hit the windows logo screen you waited too long to hit the F8 key.

Log in as administrator and change the refresh rate the way you normally would. Restart the computer and things should be fine.
Pre-XP OS's sometimes dump the video driver and it may need to be reloaded.

Hi gang,
Im having a problem with the 1280 x 1024 resolution on my monitor. any other resolution works fine. when i change it to 1280 x 1024 I get wavy flickering semi round lines on either side of the screen (kind of looks like a faint contour map). my first instinct was that the refresh rate was wrong so i set it high and low and no luck. its currently at the supported speed of 75Mhz. again it works fine at any other resolution, and is a supported res.

Any ideas?

A:Wrong refresh rate?

Did you install the monitor driver or are you using Native drivers?

Bought a acer AL 1714 lcd monitor for a budget system.Set refresh rate to 60 and adjusted screen asnd looks good.Noticed this morning that it has the capability of setting refresh rate as high as 75.Set it at that and it didnt look near as good.Maybe have to readjust.Should i just leave it alone or would it be better to set refresh rate higher.have to deliver it today and not sure if any major advantages to setting it higher.All other flat screens i have bought had 60 capabitity only.By the way it is a 17".Since budget system ,doesn't have DVI.

A:Refresh rate for LCD monitor

Actually, LCD monitors sync themselves to the incoming AC line frequency. In the US, that is 60Hz. Changing the refresh rate to any other setting will actually degrade the performance of the monitor, so I suggest you return it to the 60Hz setting and call it a job well done.
