:whistling: I have a Multisync 97F monitor and a Geforce 6600 video card and running xp pro. Everything has been fine for a while until today. Why suddenly would my monitor be flashing on and off and resetting its vertical refresh rate back to 60 hz? What is it needing or what is that a symptom of? Please help, I have it left on 60hz but i dont know how long this will last. Thank You in advance for any help

LOLOL your kidding right? It concerns me when my pc takes over and starts resetting itself.
Problem At least 85 Hz vertical refresh rate is recommended for classic (CRT) displays.

if trying the other settings didn't work and 60 did then it must be the monitor and not the video card

this has nothing to do with your monitor

Overview
The .NET Framework version 1.1 redistributable package includes everything you need to run applications developed using the .NET Framework.

The .NET Framework version 1.1 provides improved scalability and performance, support for mobile device development with ASP.NET mobile controls (formerly the Microsoft Mobile Internet Toolkit), support for Internet Protocol version 6, and ADO.NET classes for native communication with Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) and Oracle databases. It also enables the use of code access security to further lock down and isolate ASP.NET applications. For more information, read the .NET Framework Version 1.1 Product Overview.

Sounds strictly hardware....your monitor has the ability to refesh at a variety of rates (back in the old days, monitors had a single refresh rate)

The circuitry that controls the refresh rate sounds like it is dying/dead, which is why you have defaulted to the lowest refresh rate.

It does not sound like a videocard issue

As it turns out, it is the video card. I hooked up a different monitor and it did the same thing. I hooked my monitor up to a different pc and it was fine. Thank you for trying though
