If you have an LCD monitor, there is no way to change the refresh rate at all. Have you tried reducing the brightness? I find that LCDs tend to ship with the brightness cranked to uncomfortably high levels for the most part...

Looks like your need to change your resolution in the driver settings menu. What monitor do you have? Download the 81.98 drivers from http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_2k_81.98.html and install them BTW. The 77xx are too old to use.

If you have you screen area maxed out, say for example 1280 x1024, then no you won't be able to change the refresh rate. Bring it down a notch and you will be able to adjust the refresh rate.

if you want to change refresh rate try this, right click on desktop select properties click on settings tab click advanced, then click on Monitor Tab, there should be a check box stating hide modes this monitor cannot display, if that is checked- uncheck it, if not then i dont know what can help ya.

It depends on the type of TFT you have nothing more nothing less. I have a Viewsonic VP191b and I can change my refresh rate from 60 to 75. But my TFT's optimal rate is 60 @1280x1024.

Make sure in the in desktop properties you dont have "Plug and play" monitor listed and the values are not hidden in adaptor.

My CRT only supports 1280x1024 with max rate of 60 Hertz, don't bother me any though. Wish I had 1600x1200!!

LCD and TFT dont go past 75hz right? (depending on resolution)
Try installing any drivers that came with the monitor, or check the manufactures website for one. I had a problem with my 19'' Samsung CRT, couldnt go past 75hz until I installed the monitor driver, now im playing games at 1024x768-100hz :)
