I'm new using w2k for gaming with openGL... I testet Half-Life and other Software, and they all run @ 60 Hz as soon as video-mode switches to OpenGL or Direct3D (@ all possible resolutions)my monitor is capable to run 1024x768 @ 100 Hz and in w9x it did so... what is my problem... if there is no solution I gonna die because of too much headache ;-)

AMD 1 GHz, ASUS A7V, GeForce 2 GTS Pro, 256 Ram etc...

i have the exact same problem, does it with Tribes 2 and Quake 3 (haven't tried any other yet) my config is as follows:

Win 2k (no service pack yet, gonna try that in a bit)

Geforce 2 GTS 32mb, det 10.80 drivers
DX 8.0

the thing is, my bro has the same prob and he's using Whistler, he uses a voodoo 3. i'm guessing the problem is with the NT opengl.

I found a solution for this problem, but it only works with nVidia cards... you should try to use the "nvreffix" tweak from www.tweakfiles.com, (http://www.tweakfiles.com,) there you can change the refreshrate from every 2D/3D resolution very easy :-) BUT IT DOESN'T WORK with Ati cards !!! (my friend's got one)
