FX5700LE using Planar PE191M with DVI.

A couple of things:

1. The screen refresh rate seems to be stuck at 60 hertz (there doesn't seem
to be any way to change this). This seeme like a low setting to me, but it
probably has something to do with how the DVI technology works. The only
reason I mention this is because I think my other problem might be related
to having a low screen refresh rate (but I could be totally wrong about
that).

2. Playing DVD movies and AVI videos in full screen causes a lot of
horizontal video distortion. It seems like the horizontal scanlines are out
of sync somehow. To my untrained eye, it looks like the refresh rate is not
fast enough to keep up with the video motion. The crazy thing is that the
video plays perfectly (without any distortion) if the video is NOT in full
screen mode. The video plays fine even when I stretch the video screen size
to almost match my screen resolution (just as long as I don't go to full
screen).

I just upgraded to the FX5700 so that I could use DVI with my new LCD
monitor. The monitor did not seem to have this problem when I was using it
with my old non-DVI GeForce3 card. My best guess is that either the DVI
functionality of the monitor is bad or the FX5700 drivers are bad.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Noe.

I tried using an analog connection from the LCD monitor to the video card
and that seemed to fix my problem (even at the low refresh rate of 60 hertz
so I guess it had nothing to do with the screen refresh rate). I checked
for the distortions at 60 hertz and 75 hertz and got nothing. So is this
just the way DVI functions? Or is there a setting that I am missing that is
screwing up my full screen video playback?
