As the title says - I've been through the display settings and can't see how I can do it on my windows 2000 - all my games run at a fixed 75fps.

I meant from the control panel so I can see other people's fps in code I haven't written - eg in the demos I've been given there's fps but it's always stuck at 75 and I don't want to change their code.

In the ATI control panel you can "force" the framerate.
I'm (almost) sure there is a similar option in the NVidea control panel.

I have an ATI at home and can disable vsync in their control panel - I also have the NVidia control panel but can't find the disable vsync.

1. Right-click on the desktop and select NVidia Display
2. Make sure a tree-control pops up from the dialog box that appears (entitled NVidia GeForce FX 5200)
2. Expand the tab 'Geforce fx 5200' in the tree control
3. Click on 'performance and quality settings' option.
4. Select vertical sync in the global driver settings.
5. Uncheck the checkbox 'Application Controlled' and set the slider to 'Off'.
