I'm configuiring an older System (Pentium 75, grafics: ET4000 chipset, Windows 95).
Is there a tool to change the Moonitor Frequency with ET4000 cards (is not includet in drivers and not at Trident's (manufacturer) homepage.

Thank you very much.

You can't change the refresh rate under settings in display properties?

As far as I know, only Tseng have ever made a ET4000 graphics card series. You might want to look at their homepage at "http://www.tseng.com/". Click on the downloadable software link for a long list of drivers and utilities for their graphics card series.

Sorry, I made this mistake by typing the wrong name, but this answer does not solve my problem.

sgenther: Yes, there is no option to change the frequency.

Change the Monitor type to a Generic larger size monitor.

They have much more scope for refresh rates and provided you know the limitations of the card and monitor, you will have no problems.

Microsoft put monitor profiles in to annoy people.

Goodluck

Even changing the monitor type there is no possibility to change the frequency in disply properties.

Download utilities on this page called POWERSTRIP,Multires and HZTools.
You may find what you need in these.

If you go to http://scitechsoft.com/ you'll find some "use it free for 45 days" software. This software allows you to try ALL of the sync frequencies at ALL of the resolutions that your graphics card supports. It may well have a better driver than the one you are using too. Be careful though, don't use frequencies that you monitor doesn't support, or you could damage it. Normally Windows looks at the monitor.inf file for specs on your monitor, and won't exceed the the capabilities of the monitor, I'm not sure if this software follows that rule or not.

Yes, it does work this way.
The program Powerstrip proposed by netmage does work similar.

Thank you all very much

Yes the Powerstrip software does look useful too, and is not time limited etc, so I've learnt something too. You've only lost ten points by not making it an answer (I'm not quite sure what use these points are anyway).
