Hi all,

I am having some problems.

I just bought a Apple 9600 Pro 64 Mb Video card to upgrade my Geforce 5200 what came with my Dual 1.8Ghz G5 Powermac.

Anyway I have installed it and downloaded the latest drivers from ATI but I am having some issues running the card at 75Hz. When I run at this refresh my screen shakes and jumps around a little. I find when I run at 60Hz it does not have the problem. My monitor is a 19" LCD (Benq FP937s) and running at a 1280x1024 resolution. I have tried it at 1024x768 at 75Hz and again it does not shake or jump around.

Does anyone have any idea?

you don't need to bother with refresh rates with LCDs. I would just leave it at 60 and be happy.

First thing I'd do would be to restart and reset the PRAM.
