To change the refresh frequency for your monitor.
Open Display Properties...
Start | Run | Type: desk.cpl | Click OK |
Settings tab | Advanced button | Monitor tab |
In the Refresh Frequency list, click a new refresh rate

Display Properties | Settings tab | Advanced button | Monitor tab |
Properties button
opens the Properties dialog box for the monitor and video adapter.

This is the same thing you see opening the Device Manager...
Start | Run | Type: devmgmt.msc | Click OK | Click the [+] Monitors |
Double click your monitor

Hope this helps. Let us know.
