Hey guys, I hate too post a thread whining about my vista problems but I really can't fix this one. I installed Vista RC1 a couple of days ago and other than a small problem with aol instant messenger, everything has been ok. UNTIL, i wanted to play cs:s. So I download the Vista RC1 radeon driver from the website and install it and everything was fine. So the pc rebooted and when I got back to the desktop it stayed ok for like 10 secs and then my monitor went black and said the refresh rate is out of range. Uh-oh. So i tried fixing it in safe mode to no avail so i just rolled back the driver to the microsoft one that was originally installed. But now the screen wont show anything! right after the boot sequence, it immediately says refresh rate out of range. So i booted back to safe mode, and tried to change the default refresh rate but the "Default Refresh Rate" is the only option available. I would install the driver for my monitor but it is so old(max 60hz) that there is no site for a driver. I figured out the correct keystrokes to change the resolution with out having to use the mouse but that didn't work either. Does anyone know a way to lock the refresh rate at 60?
