So here's my question.
I purchased a FX5200-based Albatron AGP card for my desktop and a DVI 1280x1024 Iiyama LCD monitor.
- boot or splash screen
Both in Win 2000 splash screen and the Mandrake LInux boot screen, I noticed strange flickering segments of green pixels at the leading edges of characters. For example, if the char is say white on black on the Linux boot screen, the transition on screen between black to white is not crisp, there's a green pixel where the "black" should turn to "white". Some chars are affected some aren't, but, as the boot screen scrolls up, any affected char keeps the "defect" while moving up.
- High res screens
The window hi-res screen is fine at 1280x1024 60Hz. This is the max resolution that is allowed by the installed 5x.xx driver.
The Linux hi-res screen 1280x1024 75Hz is not entirely good. There are isolated fixed red pixels always in the same place and
sometimes vertically aligned, not contiguous red pixels.
Now I'd like to test what happens with the Win nvidia drivers at 75Hz. But the driver doesn't let me do this. Can I somehow use a modded inf to get that resolution? Could newer 6x.xx help?
