When i play 3D games there blinks really thick black lines all around the my screen. The thick black lines blink in a random places and they're always horizontal. I was thinking that i have to set my correct horizontal sync rate to fix it... But i don't know how to do that in Hardy! So how do i set the horizontal sync rate in hardy?

Please help!

Im not using Nvidia, im using ATi.
ATi Mobility Radeon x1600

Edit:
I have ATi Catalyst control center Linux edition, but it gives me no option to change the horizontal sync rate...
Edit2:
I've also tried sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg but it only asks for language and keyboard language and stuff that has nothing to do with my screen.

sudo displayconfig-gtk

runs a little display configuration app. in Hardy which offers lots more settings than the system/preferences/screen resolution preferences panel.

Please be careful with settings though - wrong sync rate, resolution, driver selection etc. could damage your telly.

sudo displayconfig-gtk Opens a window where i can change the screen model, i chose "LCD 1280 x 800 Wide screen" and restarted...
When i started up ubuntu everything was just fine but the 3D games still are the same.

Anyways, thanks.

If you have any other ideas on how to get it to work, please help!

PS: I'm not sure if its a wrong horizontal sync rate(If it even is wrong) thats causing the thick blinking lines...
