    i am getting a weird message when i play games.. Almost all the time i get a black or a weird screen with a box saying "not optimum mode. 1280x1024 60hz recommended".. and the computer freezes completely and i have to press the reset button...

    i have the latest driver from the website and the original driver from the CD does the same.. any clues?

    Did you have a CRT onitor before the FTF and were/are you using a refreshrate override app?

    Check the settings in nVidia Control Panel (nVidia card) or ATI Catalyst Control Centre (ATI card) to check that it isn't forcing a higher refresh rate for 3D

    does that help then? are there options within the game you're playing which is changing the refresh rate (unlikely though tbh)?

    no it doesnt.. problem still occurs... there are some games like starship troopers where u can set the RR but doesnt make a difference. i contacted samsung.. they told me when i go into the game i have to go back to windows and change the resolution back to 1280x1024... basically they told me they dont have a clue...
