Sounds like your monitor frequency is set to high. Mine is set to 60. You might want to check your documentation and see what they recomend.

On my w2k box, I can right click on the desktop>properties>settings>advanced>monitor. Post back what your monitor freq. is...

Your driver may not have all the bells and whistles which allows you to make any changes, but if it does, try lowering at least the refresh rate as macten suggested. Also, might see if you need to update your driver. Just as a guideline, mine maxes out at a resolution of 640x480 (120 Hz). Using 1024x768 at 60 Hz presently. If I go to 1280x1024, 60 Hz is max.
