at what resolution are you only getting 60hz is the monitor capable of a higher refresh rate at this resolution?

is this in windows or in games or both?

what version of windows?

if its xp

click start/control panel/performance and maintenance/display/settings/advanced/monitor

tick the "hide modes this monitor cannot display" box

choose the highest available.

if its in games then try click here

On the lastest nVidia fartware drivers there is an option to vertical sync the monitor under D3D. Something that seems to have passed you two by.

Change that to always off and the application will then chose the framerate.

BTW 60Hz is way too low for a monitor it will hurt your head, set it to at least 75Hz. 60Hz is the default for Proview (and other) monitors. If its a TFT though 60Hz is fine.

to The Sack,
Win ME not XP. Tried Vertical Sync but when I reboot and go to properties I still only have a choice of Default, optimal or 60hz.
When I had my Gforce 2 64 meg, I had a choice upto 85hz. The only Monitor patch I can find is for XP and dosnt seem to work on mine.
