Catleap Ghosting and Flickering

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So, I recently installed a new graphics card in my computer, moving from a 9800GTX+ to a 670GTX. A couple of days after that, I noticed that my monitor, which is a 27" Catleap, was flickering and ghosting. I can move a window, and see a shadow of the window where it used to be. I've noticed that I only encounter the flickering when my monitor is set at 60hz, but not when it's at 67hz. Has anyone encountered this?

I have heard of similar stories before, and sometimes its the GPU that is the cause, but also keep in mind that these are "cheap" monitors, so you can't expect everything to be perfect either.
But since the problem was fixed at a higher refresh rate, it really isn't a problem after all is it? smile.gif

The ghosting was still present at the higher framerate, but the flickering was fixed. Now I'm running at 60hz again and it's fine. I smacked it a couple of times redface.gif but maybe that's what did it. Cause other than that nothing changed.
