Now listen to this carefully,,,,,

Since the game came out ive played at a very high refresh rate like in the 200 range and its been working fine and ive been able to own ppl without lag

Then somehow just yesterday.....

My Screen Freezes in BF2, Crashes to desktop....

I rejoin and my video settings are at 800 x 600 @ 60Hz so then i try to put them back to normal and then my monitor shuts down and says " Too high of a refresh rate"....

Im like wow...

So then i go back to desktop try looking at my monitors refresh rate AND IT ONLY GOES UP TO 100 Hz!!!!!! WHEN YESTERDAY I WAS RUNNING AT 200's

Something happened and i dont know....

Help. Pleeze.

looks like your monitor screwed up, try to reset the monitor to its defaults and then try it again.

You could also try to set a custom refresh rate in you gfx card properties.

Very weird...ok, I'll try to help you out here. I am assuming that you have a Nvidia card. So, in the system tray, click on the Nvidia icon and go to 'Nvidia display' and it should show your monitor. Select the tab. Now go to 'Screen resolutions and refresh rates'. There is an option that says: "Hide modes that this monitor cannot support". Check that box. Now, select the refresh rates and the resolution in the respective drop down menus. Ideally you should find 200MHz or whatever it is that you were previously using. If you do not, then you could try and uninstalling the video drivers and re-installing them. If that doesn't help, here is the worst case scenario: Your monitor has some hardware problem, and if the warranty is valid still, then I suggest you take it back to the store and get it checked. If not, find a technician who can do something about it.

Be nice if we knew what monitor you are using, then we could check for what rfefresh rates it actually supports. Most monitors, even up to the 19-21 sized CRT's only support a max of 100 at their highest resolution so a bit more info would be nice.

That might be true. My 17" monitor only supports 120MHz. But at maximum resolution, it will go only up to 60Hz.

Couldn't find that exact model, however even their top of the range models only go up to a max of 160hz, and I bet not at highest resolution.

VS-195xp Frequency:30-96 kHz (horizontal)50-160 Hz

It does say this;

Dot Clock:205 MHz (max)

But that's a different thing altogether. 100Hz is fine, run it at that.

anything over 60Hz is fine man. At one time, I had this monitor and I was running it at 30Hz :D
