I can't seem to set my refresh rate at above 60Hz.
Using Win 98 with a Radeon 8500, Iiyama Pro 454 19" Monitor. I'm using the second VGA port of the Monmitor, it has 2 inputs, switchable from front panel.
Tried Catalyst 4.7, which is the latest official driver set for Win 98 and is combined with the Control Panel.
Have also tried Catalyst drivers 4.3 & 4.2 with no success. Both 4.2 & 4.3 have seperate control panels, so I tried setting refresh rate before installing them, hoping the 'Displays' section of the control panel would recognise the 85Hz rate, but it didn't. It just showed 60Hz.
I set up the screen res for 32 bit true colour & 1280 x 1024. I have installed the Iiyama Monitor drivers.
When I go into advanced settings and access the ATI control panel, the only place I can change the refresh rate is under the 'Adapter' tag. So I set it to 85Hz.
But under the 'Displays' tag it shows the correct res but refresh is fixed at 60Hz. And it is at 60Hz, it's hurting my eyes.
There is nowhere within the 'Displays' tag where I can change the refresh rate.
So I'm kind of at a loss. Is it worth trying older driver sets?
I recall there being an option to change refresh rate within the 'Displays' tag on some catalyst driver sets, but I'm sure that was within Win XP.
