My monitor has been giving me a fit lately. It is a SONY that came with me desktop, 17 flat CRT. I have had problems getting it to display the correct refresh rate for a while. I updated the Catalyst drivers for my video card and now it is VERY dark. When I go into the control center and adjust gamma,etc and all that it looks better..but not like it should Then when entering a game sometimes it goes back to being dark and vice versa to the desktop. Call me lucky, but I have never had a monitor go out on me.....Does it sound like this one is fixing to??
