I have a G3 450 with the ATI 128pro...

any suggestions?

I already have a head ache from the flicker.....

Try Deleting your "Display Preferences" and zapping the PRAM.

Ok Switch Res (something I got from another thread) gave me the posiblity of more and higher resolutions but at a lower Hz.... which gives more flicker (my eyes still hurt from a full day of 60hz)

I need to run 1280 X 1024 @ 75hz.... not 60 or 50

is there any other fixes out there?

well, the refresh rate is a feature of your graphics card not the OS...the OS might not show you all resolutions but SwithRes does...so if you want to do better consider getting a new graphics card. My Radeon does 1280x1024 at 75Hz without a hitch.

well your some what right but I know what resolutions I had before OS 9.1 and I know what I have now... not the same

And I do have a ATI 128 pro (with 16MB of video ram), it's just one generation down from what you have and is still sold in some macs or was until recently...

I also know that I'm not the only person to have this problem based on other threads... the only thing I haven't done since finding this problem that others have is regress to 9.04!

come on Apple get with it...

You might want to try updating/downgrading your drivers. It might be possible that Mac OS 9.1 installed a new set of drivers which prevents you from using the resolutions previously available.

I have a stock ATI Rage Pro 128 16MB SDRAM that came with my Power Mac G4/400, and I've not seen any loss in available resolutions in my updated system.
