Question Distrotion on movie files at full screen

OK, when I play a DVD, or open up any type of movie file in full screen the pictue is distorted somewhat- lines all over the screen basically. The only way to solve this is to lower my monitor's refresh rate to 60hz (normally at 75hz)...

Fair enough you say, but the point is this has never happened before, or at least I haven't played a movie since I got the latest Forceware driver (66.93).


Has anyone else here encountered anything like this? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

It could be the driver's roll them back and see what happen's,or it might be the program that you are using to view the file's,if it's the same viewer you had before it's probably the the new driver.

Could be monitor or video card drivers ^^ if that doesnt work than try to see if changing these works.

I had that problem, and I had those drivers, a rolling back the drivers worked for me.

Thanks guys. I'll try rolling back the drivers. You'd think though nVidia et all would've ironed out these kinda problems by now though
