Hi all.
I want to change the refresh rate on my monitor a sony SDM S81. I am running win2k. However it will only allow a max refresh rate of 60hz.
I have downloaded a prog to correct this called reforce.
When I try to run the prog I get the following error message.
"Windows reports that a default monitor driver is active. This may cause automatic detection to give incorrect results. Check you booted your PC with the monitor switched ON, and you are using the appropriate monitor drivers."
I have gone to the device manager & tried to uninstall the default monitor, but each time I reboot the default monitor is still listed.
Graphics card is radeon 9800 pro.
Help please.

Windows installs default monitor as standerd so you need to find a driver specific for your monitor and install that.


Regards.

Jester, thanks for the answer on the refresh prob. I checked out the ATI
site as posted followed there instructions but the error is still the same."
Windows reports that a default monitor driver is active. This may cause
automatic detection to give incorrect results. Check you booted your PC with
the monitor switched ON, and you are using the appropriate monitor drivers."
The original article on the refresh prob is listed here, however when i
loaded reforce I get the error message concerning the default monitor.
